Child-Care and Family Predictors of Preschool Attachment and Stability from Infancy.
NICHD Early Child Care Research Network.
Developmental Psychology, v37 n6 p847-62 Nov 2001
Analyzed relationships between child-care experience and preschoolers' attachment. Found that maternal sensitivity was the strongest predictor of preschoolers' attachment. When maternal sensitivity was low, more hours per week in child care at 15 months somewhat increased the risk of the insecure-ambivalent classification at 36 months. Found significant but modest stability of attachment classifications from 15 to 36 months. (Author/KB)
