Identifying and Exploring Profiles of Home-Based Child Care Providers: A Mixed Methods Study of Licensed and Unlicensed Providers
This mixed methods study seeks to broaden the understanding of home-based child care providers and their beliefs and practices related to children and families. Many low-income children from birth to five receive care in home-based child care settings. However, relatively little is known about home-based providers, how they view their role, the quality of care they provide, and how to effectively engage them in quality improvement initiatives. This study uses a national sample of home-based providers from the National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE) to explore national trends, as well as a sample of providers in Delaware to garner a deeper understanding of the results of the analysis of the national data.
