Noting that little research about stability and continuity in the child care workforce has focused on the fast-growing sector of license-exempt informal relative care, this report focuses on labor turnover among subsidized license-exempt providers as part of a larger longitudinal study of all sectors of the child care workforce in Alameda County, California. Participating in the study were six of the seven agencies in Alameda County administering 95 percent of the child care subsidies for qualifying families. Agency lists of license-exempt child care providers receiving subsidies were examined to determine staff stability over two 6-month periods and one 12-month period. Census data were used to identify the median household income of the neighborhoods in which providers lived, and subsidy agencies provided information regarding the relationship of the provider to the children in their care and the location of care (own home versus child's home). Findings revealed that license-exempt providers receiving public subsidies were characterized by high levels of instability, with only 31 percent of providers remaining on the subsidy lists 12 months later. Provider departure rates varied by agency, with those agencies providing short-term subsidies for parents seeking employment or involved in training having higher rates of provider departure. Providers who were related to the children in their care were more likely than nonrelatives to remain on the subsidy lists. For families with stable employment, a change in child care provider was more likely to be initiated by the provider than by the parent. (Contains 11 endnotes and 20 references.) (KB)
