Relations between Preschool Children's Child-Care Experiences and Concurrent Development: The Cost, Quality, and Outcomes Study.
Peisner-Feinberg, Ellen S.; Burchinol, Margaret R.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v43 n3 p451-77 Jul 1997
A portion of the Child Care Cost, Quality, and Outcomes study finds that quality of center-based care was positively related to preschool children's concurrent cognitive and socioemotional development. More advantaged children are not necessarily buffered from effects of poor quality care. In addition, stronger positive effects of child care quality were found for children from at-risk family backgrounds. (MT)
