Strengthening Families Illinois: How Management and Policy Interventions Influence the Quality of Professional-Parent Partnerships in Child Care

The goals of this multiple case study were to: (1) identify how Strengthening Families Illinois (SFI) influenced changes in child care programs; (2) identify theorized characteristics of conventional and relational child care organizations; and (3) test the hypothesis that conventional bureaucratic organizational systems discourage partnerships with families, whereas relational bureaucratic organizations are more conducive to partnerships with families.
