Measurement Development: Quality of Caregiver-Child Interactions for Infants and Toddlers

FPG statisticians will collaborate with Mathematica Policy Research and Child Trends on a contract with the Administration for Children and Families to design a study to develop a new measure to assess the quality of caregiver‐child interactions for infants and toddlers in nonparental care. The new measure will be appropriate for use across child care settings, including center‐based and family child care settings, as well as single- and mixed-age classrooms.
