Prices Reported by Center-Based Early Care and Education Providers: Associations with Indicators of Quality
January 27, 2021 – General – ChildcareThe Office of the Administration for Children & Families reports that paying for child care can place a burden on households, especially those with low incomes. Currently, there is a dearth of knowledge regarding whether households obtain higher-quality child care when they pay higher prices for that care. To that end, this research brief uses data from center-based providers to examine whether centers that report higher prices for child care provide higher-quality care, as measured with a variety of indicators. #childcare
