Abstract: 

Presented at the 2008 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

Two states shared their respective efforts to support program quality in order to enhance early childhood outcomes. The presentations were intended to stimulate group dialogue about strategies states are using and collaborative problem-solving around questions of where early childhood outcomes efforts sit in relation to other EC initiatives, what constitutes program quality, and what is being done to evaluate quality in relation to child outcomes.
