A Behavioral Comparison of Early and Late Starting Day-Care Children.
Schwarz, J. Conrad; And Others
Based upon eight months of observation in the same setting, 19 three- and four-year olds who had been in day care from infancy were compared on nine behavior traits with matched subjects who had no day care experience prior to the study. The early-day-care group was found to be significantly more aggressive, motorically active, and less cooperative with adults. Consideration of these results in the light of other findings with the same and other samples, suggested that early day care experience may not affect adversely adjustment with peers, but may slow acquisition of some adult cultural values.
