    • Clarke-Stewart et al.
      • studied 150 children
      • found that children in group-based day care were actually more sociable and better able to negotiate with peers compared to 'home' children
    • Campbell et al.
      • found children who spent a long time in day care were less socially competent than children who spent shorter days in day care
    • Field

    • Evaluation
      • The child’s experience will depend on the type of day care they attend, eg nursery or child minder
      • The age at which children start day care and the time they spend there each week are also important
