Understanding Informal Systems of Care

Concept Hatchery conducted qualitative, ethnographic research with sets of parents and their informal caregivers to understand the attitudes, beliefs, relationships, and interactions that affect how and why parents and caregivers make the decisions they do. In this report, the research team provides detail about the mindsets and motivations of various parents and the adults that provide care for their children, the delicate balance of interactions between adults that drive care, and a hierarchy of needs that should be considered to enable high-quality informal child care.
