A review of the research reveals that older studies show no group differences in mother-child attachment between children cared for at home by their mothers and children in substitute child care, and that newer studies do report differences. Along with other methodological limitations, most fail to consider interaction of family and child care systems. An ecological model is considered with suggestions for future research.
