Measuring and monitoring quality in child care in relation with respect for diversity

PhD student: Jeroen Janssen
Summary: Since the upbringing of children in child care services is supposed to be a shared responsibility between the private and the public sphere, parents should have equal chances to participate in defining pedagogical quality. However, parents, staff and policymakers can have different ideas and expectations regarding the raising of young children and the shared responsibility in itself. This PhD focuses on three perspectives in raising children together: the perspective of policymakers, parents and staff.
