Daycare quality

Posted:

A good daycare seems to pay off during the teen years.

New research from the National Institutes of Health finds teens who were in high-quality childcare as young children scored slightly better on academic tests than those who'd been in lower-quality daycare.

Daycare was also associated with behavior differences. Those who spent the most time in daycare were less likely to act out -- but were a bit more likely to be impulsive and take more risks.

The research is published in the new issue of Child Development.
