Agencies, such as CCO and CQCO, have responsibilities to provide leadership in quality initiatives and to provide feedback to surgeons and hospitals in a collaborative fashion.
Although the accreditation process was not their primary focus, two national preschool (birth to age 4) child care studies--the Cost Quality and Child Outcome (CQCO) (Helburn, 1995) and the National Child Care Staffing Study (NCCSS) (Whitebook, Howes, & Phillips, 1989)--included NAEYC-accredited programs in their investigation.
Findings from the CQCO study showed that NAEYC-accredited centers had higher than average quality; as a group, however, the accredited centers (31 out of 401) did not provide the highest quality of care.
