Note: This study is complete. The information on this page is provided for historical purposes only, and serves as a bridge to the SECCYD datasets. The page is not being updated.

SECCYD began as the Study of Early Child Care in 1991. Working with more than 1,300 children and their families, the researchers analyzed how different child care arrangements related to measurements of the children's health, behavior, school performance, and other indicators of development in infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, and middle adolescence.

NICHD supported the SECCYD through cooperative agreement grants (U10s and a U01). Read the Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development Overview (Historical/For Reference Only) to learn more.
