1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

Studies examining the effects of day care are reviewed. Little evidence was found indicating a negative impact on child development. A number of weaknesses in the day care literature were pointed out, including problems of ecological validity and failure to examine for differential effects. Suggestions for future research are made, among them a "natural history" of day care and studies of children who have experienced trauma.
