The earliest years of life are a time of tremendous growth and opportunity, and early experiences have lasting effects on future development. Thus, high-quality services must be a priority for programs and professionals serving families with infants and toddlers. This issue of ZERO TO THREE explores a variety of innovative approaches to quality improvement. The articles focus on efforts to: improve the capacity of home visitors to address maternal depression, increase cultural competency and equity in the early intervention system, evaluate the effectiveness of family child care networks that have the potential for improving family child care quality, and create competency standards in early care and education programs.
