Partnership between Parents and Caregivers of Young Children in Full-time Daycare
This qualitative study investigated the perspectives of parents and caregivers regarding their partnership when young children are in daycare. Both the overall relationship and communication during daily contact in mornings and afternoons were studied. The sample consisted of 41 parents of children aged two years or younger (22 boys and 19 girls) who were in daycare, and 35 of the children's caregivers. Parents and caregivers were interviewed. Despite their high level of satisfaction with the overall relationship, a number of parents and caregivers said they did not have much specific knowledge of the child's experiences in daycare or at home, respectively. Furthermore, although most parents and caregivers expressed satisfaction with their daily communication, they felt that the quality of communication could be improved, particularly at the end of the day.
