She found that mothers who had reported greater satisfaction with their primary care arrangement at a prior study wave from nine to eighteen months earlier were less likely to use multiple arrangements at the next wave.

Tran and Weinraub focused on cognitive and language outcomes and found that having a mixture of family and nonrelative caregivers was associated with less language development by 15 months of age.

A complex interaction between multiple arrangements and quality of the primary arrangement also emerged, hinting at the different reasons parents might use multiple arrangements constraints and priorities. Among children with low-quality primary arrangements, using multiple arrangements was associated with lower language development. Among children with high-quality primary arrangements, using multiple arrangements was associated with higher language development.

She found that moving from single to multiple arrangements between the ages of 2 and 3 was associated with decreases in maternal reports of social competence and increases in maternal reports of externalizing behavior problems.

A similar pattern was evident for caregiver reports of child behaviors, although the associations were not statistically significant. Caregiver reports of internalizing problems also increased significantly for children who moved from single to multiple arrangements. The results of these two studies inform ours in several ways. To the extent this is true, children who combine center-based and home-based child care may not fully realize the average benefits of each type, demonstrating somewhat lower cognitive outcomes than children in exclusive center care and somewhat greater behavior problems than children in exclusive home care.

We account for this possibility by distinguishing full-time and part-time care. The Present Study Our study builds on prior research by focusing on preschool-aged 4-year-old children, distinguishing families who combine a home and center child care arrangement from those who combine two centers or two homes, examining a larger set of parental perceptions of care, and considering a wider range of child outcomes both cognitive and socioemotional together in a single study. We take advantage of a large national data set that offers sufficient sample sizes for separating each care configuration of interest and that allows us to paint a representative portrait of which families use these various configurations.

Centers are also more expensive than home-based arrangements Child Care Aware of America, For these reasons, we anticipate that parents might combine part-time center care with part-time home-based child care rather than use center-based care exclusively, in order to reduce costs relative to using a center full time , to access the flexibility and sick care typically found with a home-based provider possibly including on days the child would normally attend a center, but is sick or the center is closed for a holiday , and ease commuting at least on some days of the week.

On the other hand, combining a center with a family child care provider would presumably be more expensive than only using a center part time.

The increased logistical complexity of combining care arrangements is also likely a practical barrier for some parents; and, the inflexibility, distance and cost of centers may still be an obstacle for some parents, even when combined with home-based care.

These factors may weaken the hypothesized association between practical needs and combining care. Based on our full conceptual model, we organize our predictor variables into four major categories: 1 priorities for child care, 2 perceptions of care options, 3 family demographics, and 4 lagged measures of child development.

The first two sets contain our focal predictors, featured in our research questions and hypotheses. The second two sets of variables reduce bias in our non-experimental estimates, with the lagged variables offering a particularly robust adjustment for many potential confounds, including those that are difficult to measure such as genetic factors; Johnson, ; Wooldridge, Specifically, we examine two overarching research questions: How do parental priorities for child care and perceptions of local care options predict their likelihood of combining center-based with home-based non-parental child care?

Within these overarching research questions we lay out the following hypotheses, based on the literature reviewed above. For research question one, we anticipate that: 1a Parents who endorse school readiness as a priority when choosing care will be more likely to combine center care with home-based child care than those who use home-based child care exclusively or those that use no non-parental child care.

For research question two, we anticipate that: 2a Children who combine center- and home-based child care and children who attend center-based care exclusively will have higher cognitive outcome scores, on average, than children who attend home-based child care or who rely on exclusive parental care.

In examining these hypotheses, we distinguish center care that is and is not funded by Head Start, allowing us to see whether patterns differ for this program, which primarily serves low-income families and has historically offered part-day and part-year care Currie, ; Gormley, Department of Health and Human Services, Thus, we expect Hypothesis 2a will hold for both centers and Head Start, but Hypothesis 2b may be evident only in contrast to children who exclusively attend centers that are not funded by Head Start.

Seventy-four percent of eligible families participated in the initial 9-month interview producing an initial sample size of 10, all sample sizes are rounded to the nearest 50 as per the ECLS-B data sharing agreement. We focused on data collected at the 4-year preschool wave when 8, mothers completed the main interview. We applied these sampling weights in our analyses.

The Care and Feeding of Children by L. Emmett Holt

Among children with low-quality primary arrangements, using multiple arrangements was associated with lower language development. Specifically, children might achieve the higher cognitive development associated with center care along with the lower levels of behavior problems often associated with home-based child care in prior research. download the eBook Price:
