A Packet of Scales for Measuring Quality of Child Care from a Parent’s Point of View: With Summary of Method and Findings (Research Report)

Author(s): Arthur Emlen, Paul Koren, Kathryn Schultze
These scales measure quality of child care from a parent’s point of view. The measurement scales were developed in a four-year project under a grant from the Child Care Bureau to Portland State University and the Oregon Child Care Research Partnership. A full description of the methodology and findings appeared in a final report From a Parent’s Point of View: Measuring the Quality of Child Care. The scales provide useful and reliable measurement tools for parent assessment of the quality of their child care arrangements.
