Default Quality Care, Quality Schooling

Quality care, quality schooling

Quality care, quality schooling

The quality of care kids get at a young age could impact them and their moms. Researchers looked at care in children from birth to age four and a half, using surveys, observations, and physical exams.

Robert Crosnoe is at the University of Texas at Austin.

“Mothers tended to be more school-involved when their children had longer histories of high-quality care since birth.” (5 seconds)

Kids were more prepared to start school, and benefited from their moms’ involvement in their education.

"High quality care is important on many levels. And this is true for people who need care for practical reasons, like parents who work and, for example, parents who want to expose their children to peers or who are seeking enriching preschool environments for their kids." (12 seconds)

The study was supported by the National Institutes of Health.
