dc.description.abstract The present study investigated the relationship between SES, home environment, and amount of childcare on the language of 3, 4, and 5 year old children. This study also developed a parental report measure of the home environment. Results confirm the positive relationship between language and SES. Findings on the positive relationship between language and home environment, as measured with the new Home Environment Questionnaire (HEQ), are consistent with previous research using exhaustive observational and interview measures. Furthermore, results show that hours per week of childcare are not related to language after controlling for SES and home environment. This study is significant in that it confirms the validity of the new HEQ which offers greater utility in measuring home environment than other more rigorous measures. en_US
