The New York City Infant Day Care Study Design.
Rosenbluth, Lucille
This paper provides a brief introduction to the New York City Infant Day Care Study, a 5-year, longitudinal study in which children in three different child rearing environments are compared: (1) infants in group day care, (2) infants in family day care, and (3) infants reared at home. Data are being collected on three major aspects of child development: (1) health, nutrition, and physical development; (2) psychological development (cognitive, language, social, personality, and emotional); and (3) family development. A total of 500 children are involved: (1) 250 children (half from group day care and half from family day care) who are followed from program entry until they reach age 3; (2) another 100 children who do not enter the programs until age 3; and (3) an at-home sample of 150 children, ages 6, 12, or 18 months. The nature of the research partnership formed between the participating day care agencies, the study staff, the Agency for Child Development, and the Health Department is described. (ED)
