NICHD Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (SECCYD) Series RSS

The National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD) Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (SECCYD) is a four-phase, multi-site, prospective, longitudinal study designed to examine the relationships between child development and child care during infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, and middle adolescence. The SECCYD constitutes the most comprehensive study conducted to date of children and the many environments in which they develop.

The initial phase of the SECCYD was conducted by the Quantitative Systems Laboratory (QSL) at Vanderbilt University, while the final three stages were conducted by RTI International.
