We investigate pre-teenage effects of type of non-parental child care at age three (preschool versus more informal family day care) on overall and risky behavior and objective and self-evaluated abilities. We find no strong evidence that one type of non-parental care outperforms the other, although children who have been placed in preschool tend to like school better.
