Family Child Care: Characteristics, Relationships and Parent, and Child Outcomes


The proposed research study will build upon an ongoing collaboration with a family child care network, to conduct a within-group examination of family child care programs used by a group of urban, low-income families. Specifically, this project aims to address and understand the nuanced characteristics of FCC homes by investigating the relationships between parents and providers and how these affect parent and child functioning. The study proposes to partner with the Maryland State Family Child Care Association (MSFCCA) which currently provides services and support to FCC providers in the state of Maryland. Working with MSFCCA staff, our goal is to recruit 30 FCC providers and 150 families as participants in this study.
