This study aims to analyze the differences in the time and the cost of private tutoring and the gains and strains of work-parenting compatibility according to participation in Elementary Care Class in dual-income families in each grade. For this purpose, data from the 8th year (2015 survey) and 9th year (2016 survey) of the Korean Children Panel (PSKC) were analyzed, which included 610 (1st grade) and 575 (2nd grade) dual-income families. The main results are as follows. First, there was a significant difference not only in the time of private tutoring but also in the cost of private tutoring between the students who participated in Elementary Care Class and those who did not participate in each grade (p<.01). However, there was no significant effect of participation in Elementary Care Class on the gains and strains of work-parenting both of the fathers and the mothers in each grade. This suggests that more research should be conducted in order to enhance the effects of the caring service and learning programs of Elementary Care Class.
