Quality of Caregiver-Child Interaction for Infants and Toddlers (Q-CCIIT): A Review of the Literature

This review of the literature is one of several components of the Measurement Development: Quality of Caregiver-Child Interaction for Infants and Toddlers (Q-CCIIT) project. The main purpose of the Q-CCIIT project is to develop a new measure to assess the quality of caregiver-child interactions within varied non-parental care settings for infants and toddlers. This review describes previous work on both parent-child interactions and quality measures used in early care settings serving infants and toddlers.
