The Effects of Infant Child Care on Infant-Mother Attachment Security: Results of the NICHD [National Institute of Child Health and Human Development] Study of Early Child Care.
NICHD Early Child Care Research Network
Child Development, v68 n5 p860-79 Oct 1997
Examined validity of Strange Situation attachment classifications for infants with and without extensive child-care experience and the association of early child-care experience with attachment security. Found that infants were less likely to be secure when low maternal sensitivity was combined with poor quality child care, more than minimal amounts of child care, or more than one care arrangement.
