This paper offers a brief outline of current Canadian research contributing to the understanding of quality in early child care and education, and highlights, as a means of demonstrating elements of high quality, a range of early childhood care and education programs, policies, and practices offered in Canada. Three separate components of Canadian practice are described: (1) the comprehensive new family policy in Quebec, which increases the accessibility of child care; (2) the provision of multi-age groupings that include infants and toddlers in Ontario; and (3) the creation of a Family Development Centre in downtown Toronto designed to meet the diverse needs of parents and children. The paper notes that all three of these components reveal a research-based approach to ensuring that the concepts of quality are evolving. (Author/EV)
