Childcare: How are the Children Doing?

At Brainwave Trust we are often asked, “What are the effects of childcare on children?” We know that parents want the best for their children, and sometimes have difficult choices to make, which is why they deserve honest, as objective-as-possible information. We conducted a lengthy review of the research to see what is known about the possible effects of childcare, on the children themselves. The answers aren’t straightforward but this article summarises what we found. Click here.

We have also summarised this into a two page ‘Behind the Headlines’, please click here to read this.
