Outcome of the Early Childhood Education in the CHDS Cohort

This report examines the outcomes of attendance at early childhood education (ECE) amongst members of the Christchurch Health and Development Study (CHDS) birth cohort, with a particular focus on the potential benefits of ECE attendance for longer term outcomes in adolescence and young adulthood. The CHDS is a longitudinal study of a birth cohort of 1265 children who were born in Christchurch during mid-1977. As part of the study information has been gathered on patterns of ECE attendance and a wide array of cognitive, educational, social, behavioural, socioeconomic and psychosocial outcomes over the life course. This report examines the associations between ECE attendance between ages 2-5 years and outcomes to age 30. The report is presented in six chapters.
