"The NICHD Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development is a critically important milestone in the science of human development. The results compellingly illustrate the powerful roles of child care experience and family dynamics in shaping human adaptation and development. The results also offer a somber warning on the developmental consequences of poor-quality out-of-home care, which is all too prevalent in the United States. This book can and should influence every child care provider, parent, and policymaker to strive for an improvement in the quality of child care and of family social policy."--Craig T. Ramey, PhD, Center on Health and Education, Georgetown University
"This book is a badly needed compilation and interpretation of the multifaceted results of the landmark NICHD study of child care in America. This is not only the single most important study of child care ever done, but it was undertaken by a group of extremely knowledgeable scholars. Their willingness to explore conventional as well as controversial issues concerning the effects of early care experiences on the developing child makes this volume a treasure."--Edward Zigler, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), Yale University
