Examining quality in family child care: An evaluation of All Our Kin [Executive summary]


The current study aims to answer the question, How does the quality of care that All Our Kin family child care providers offer compare to the quality of care of providers who are not associated with All Our Kin? It used a quasi-experimental design with one group of 28 All Our Kin providers and one comparison group of 20 licensed family child care providers who had no contact with All Our Kin (nor the opportunity to do so). Trained observers who were unaffiliated with All Our Kin visited all providers' programs for approximately three hours each, evaluating them using two instruments: the Family Child Care Environmental Rating Scale -- Revised (FCCERS-R) and the Parenting Interactions with Children: Checklist of Observations Linked to Outcomes (PICCOLO). In addition, providers completed a survey about their programs and their professional, demographic, and personal characteristics. (author abstract)
