Chapter 2: Where the children are: Exploring quality, community, and support for family, friend and neighbor child care

Eva M. Shivers, Flora Farago

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter describes two studies examining quality of care in Family, Friend, and Neighbor (FFN) child care settings in two separate communities. The findings from two studies are shared and discussed through the use of a socio-cultural theoretical lens that necessitates an exploration of specific communities’ histories as well as current political context. We explicitly list and describe implications for designing successful and culturally responsive professional development initiatives and policies that are responsive to this hard-to-reach group of providers and the families they serve.
