For Aggression :

The NICHD carried out a longtitudinal study of 1000 children from diverse families. When the cohort were tested at the age of 5, it was found that children who had attended day care were three times more likely to show aggressive behaviour than children who didn't attend day care. Children who attended day care were also rated as aggresive, assertive and disobedient by adults.

A strength of the NICHD study would be that it has high ecological and population validity. As the study was carried in a natural setting, this could mean that results obtained would be more realistic and accurate, due to a high ecological validity.  The large sample size of 1000 participants from diverse families means the sample is representative, and has the ability to be generalised on aggression in real life. 

The NICHD study can be supported by Belsky, who carried out the same longtitudinal study on  the same participants, when they were near the end of finishing primary school. Belsky found that attending day care still seemed to be linked to higher levels of aggression in participants, supporting the NICHD's idea that spending time in day care is linked to increased levels of aggression.

A weakness of the NICHD study is that the findings have incorrectly been emphasised. The results of the study also found that 83 percent of children who spent 10-30 hours in day care, did not show high levels of aggression. As a result, a NICHD worker claimed that the results of aggresion so far,tell us very little about the effects of day care. Therefore, this study can be seen as lacking reliability, as we aren't whether the results or accurate, or correct enough in order to generalise to the whole population.

Sylva et al  carried out a longtitudinal study in Britian, known as the EPPE project, where 5000 children between the ages of 3 and 7 were tested on, and it was found that the longer a child spends in day care, the more they were rated by their  teachers as showing evidence of aggression and disobedience, compared to other children.

A weakness of the EPPE study is that the quality of care is not controlled for. A study by Sylvia (2003), reported that if day care was of a high quality, then the impact of aggression could be reduced, particularly for those children attending day care from a very young age (less than two). This suggests that the findings are unreliable, as the higher the quality of care,the less negative effects experienced, thus making it difficult to conclude that day care itself is the primary cause of  increased aggression.

A further weakness of all day care research is that the findings are not causal. The data collected in both the NICHD and EPPE project are correlational, and as such, we cannot say that day care impacts aggression. Instead, the data showed that aggresiveness and day care are linked in some way. Other factors that may cause occurences of increased aggression, are inadequate supervision,sensitivity of mother, maternal education,and family income. As such, the results to date are meaningless, until we knowthe processesby which aggression is increased
