Researchers have suggested that day care can both harm and help single mother's child's learning development.

Dr. Daniel Henderson, the J. Weldon and Delores Cole Faculty Fellow at Culverhouse, and his team examined and analyzed the results of previous research on the benefits and harms of child care for children of single moms.

Henderson found in his research that if a single mother has a higher level of education, then day care can be harmful to a child's cognitive development, while children of single mothers with less education actually benefit from being in day care.

Henderson and his colleagues were able to contradict the findings of a previous study that indicated the gender of a child and the type (whether formal or informal) impact learning capabilities in day care.

"We found that gender and type of day care had no bearing, but the amount and the level of education of the single mothers both have an impact," said Henderson. "We found that on average, more day care led to more negative returns to test scores and that higher educated single mothers' children suffered the most."

The study is set to be published in the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics.
