Jessica Pleuss, assistant professor of psychology at Morningside College, recently coauthored a paper published in Early Childhood Research Quarterly.
The article, titled “Family child care providers and center-based providers: Differences in patterns of caregiving behavior over time,” examines the quality of caregiving received by infants and toddlers in family and center-based child care arrangements.
For over 20 years, Early Childhood Research Quarterly has influenced the field of early childhood education and development through the publication of empirical research.
Pleuss earned her master’s and doctoral degrees in child psychology from the University of Minnesota’s Institute of Child Development, along with certificates in applied developmental psychology and parent education. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and Chinese language from Valparaiso University.
