How Early Child Care Affects Later Development. Science Briefs
National Scientific Council on the Developing Child
"Science Briefs" summarize the findings and implications of a recent study in basic science or clinical research. This brief reports on the study "Are there Long-Term Effects of Early Child Care?" (J. Belsky, D. L. Vandell, M. Burchinal, K. A. Clarke-Stewart, K. McCartney, M. T. Owen, M. T., and The NICHD Early Child Care Research Network). Observations of children followed from birth through school age find that parenting quality has a stronger influence on children's cognitive and social-emotional development than the child care experience, but also find that quality child care is associated with positive language and behavioral development. [Study Title and Authors: Belsky, J., Vandell, D. L., Burchinal, M., Clarke-Stewart, K. A., McCartney, K., Owen, M. T., & The NICHD Early Child Care Research Network (2007). Are there long-term effects of early child care? "Child Development" 78: 681-701.]
