Effects of Childcare on Teens

Did you know the level of childcare a kid receives as a young child will directly affect their teenage behavior? A new study conducted by the University of California concludes that teens who had high-quality care at a young age performed better on both academic and cognitive tests. While some would expect the correlation to fade away, this was quite the opposite.

Over 1,300 teenagers from different social and economic backgrounds were tested across 10 states. While the hours of weekly childcare fluctuated, those children who had high-quality care, on average scored 5.3 points higher than those without quality care.
