Who's Minding Our Preschoolers?

Written by:
Report Number P70-53

One of the greatest challenges for employed parents is finding good quality, low cost child care.  Reliable, quality care is especially important for preschoolers because young children are dependent on caregivers to fulfill their basic needs and to keep them from harm.  Preschoolers are also in the midst of forming personalities, developing cognitively, and learning social skills, and child care providers can and do have a major impact on these processes and their outcomes.  For these reasons, finding the right provider is critical.  In this report, we examine how working parents arrange care for their preschoolers.
