Darrell Meece, education, co-authored a publication resulting from an inter-disciplinary examination of correlates of informal child care among low-income families with Ellen Kossek and Shaun Pichler of Michigan State University, and Marguerite Barratt of George Washington University. This research, funded by the Gerber Foundation, reflects collaboration of management, labor and industrial relations, early childhood education, and family and child social policy perspectives. Data from interviews conducted with 187 family, friend and neighbor child care providers receiving public subsidies indicated that, even after controlling for familial status or household income, caregiver perceptions of higher quality care were associated with higher education levels, greater attachment to child care as a job; and lower provider depressive symptoms. Further, findings from the study suggest that mothers who have providers with whom they have good caregiving interactions may experience positive social support and psychological crossover dynamics associated with mother well-being. The reference for the publication is:
