Children's development is fostered by both high quality Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) settings and high quality home learning environments. As we know little about the interrelations between these two environments, we examine whether the child's attendance in a high quality ECEC arrangement relates to the quality of her home learning environment. Using rich NICHD Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development data, we show that ECEC quality is associated with the home learning environment, even after taking into account the lagged dependent variable and a rich set of control variables.
