Quality Care for Children

Community Issue
Quality Care for Children (QCC) is a nonprofit organization with a 30-year history of ensuring Georgia’s infants and young children are nurtured and educated. The organization’s primary focus is on creating excellence in child care and early learning by 1) supporting quality child care programs and providers and 2) helping parents access affordable, quality childcare. QCC needed an evaluation to support a new data management system they planned to use.

Evaluation Solution
CES developed several components for QCC to utilize in their new data management system. CES worked collaboratively with the entire QCC team to develop the program logic model. We then reviewed each measure the organization was using to assess process and outcomes and identified areas with no measures. The result was a detailed evaluation plan that the organization used to program its new ETO (Efforts to Outcomes) Data Management System.

Not only was CES able to support the implementation of the ETO Data Management System, but we were able to build the evaluation capacity of QCC. QCC implemented the plan we developed, and has since hired an internal evaluator.
