This OPRE brief defines two cross-cutting themes: the quality and quantity of implementation. A review of recent empirical work provides examples of how these constructs are assessed and examined in relation to early care and education program outcomes. The authors highlight implications for researchers, purveyors, and funders of early childhood programs.
