Teacher, center, and neighborhood characteristics associated with variations in preschool quality in childcare centers


The current study utilized latent profile analysis (LPA) with classroom process, structural features, and neighborhood disadvantage indicators to identify patters of quality and neighborhood disadvantage within a diverse sample of childcare programs serving preschool children. Methods Classroom processes (instructional support, emotional support, classroom management, positive discipline) and structural features (teacher age, experience, education, and satisfaction) data was collected from preschool teachers (N = 127) from 76 childcare programs. Neighborhood disadvantage (median income; rates of unemployment, single parents, and education) was measured using census tract data. (author abstract)
