Résumé: This study examine whether quality of daycare and parental satisfaction with daycare moderate the relationship between family income and parental stress. The sample consisted of 163 families of four year old children (Montreal), who have attended regulated daycare full time since 12 months old. Results indicate that parental satisfaction with daycare is a significant predictor of parental stress and that low quality of care moderates the relation between low family income and high parental stress. The results underline the importance of interventions to enhance quality in daycare settings, particularly in a childcare network largely funded by the government.
