Children placed in childcare centres are more likely to develop hyperactive and aggressive behaviours than those in home care, a study suggests.

Researchers from the University of Adelaide monitored the development of more than 3200 children across Australia following time spent in different types of care up to age three.

Based on surveys of parents and teachers, they found the length of time spent in childcare centres was directly linked to increases in problem behaviours by the age of four or five.

University of Adelaide PhD student Angela Gialamas says children who spent time in childcare centres were more likely to be restless, easily distracted and aggressive towards others.

But they were also less likely to be anxious or depressed than children who did not attend childcare, Ms Gialamas said.

“These children were less likely to be reported by parents and teachers as being unhappy and withdrawn,” she told reporters on Wednesday.

“That may relate to childcare centres having more same-aged peers than any other type of child care setting.”

Ms Gialamas said further research was required to determine why children placed in childcare centres were more likely to develop problem behaviours.

Children who spent more time in family day care or under the care of nannies did not show increased signs of problem behaviours, she said.

More than 75 per cent of children surveyed had spent regular time in the care of someone other than their parents by the age of three.

The study was partly funded by a scholarship from Healthy Development Adelaide and the Channel 7 Children’s Research Foundation.
