Child Development, v73 n4 p1052-72 Jul-Aug 2002
Examined data on 900 European American children from the NICHD Study of Early Child Care to explore links between maternal employment during the child's first year and child cognitive outcomes. Found that maternal employment by the child's ninth month related to lower school readiness scores at 36 months, with more pronounced effects for certain subgroups, even when controlling for child care quality, home environment quality, and maternal sensitivity.
