There was curiosity on whether the global quality in Greek preschool and infant/toddler classrooms was of high enough quality child care in providing enriching developmental skills so an article was written on the case study, Using the ACEI Global Guidelines Assessment to Evaluate the Quality of Early Child Care in Greek Settings. A case study research done by NICHD Early Child Care Research Network 2003 shows that the outcomes for child’s development is related great to the quality of care received, even though that extent of child care is a great factor as well as balance of providers, and which type of setting it may be play a great role the quality of care is what dominos down to the child development.

It is well said that the superiority of care in the early childhood stage correlates exactly with their educational outcomes in the future. Global concern has risen over the last decade of the quality care children receive because there is more being discovered on how it correlates to educational outcomes but in Greece it is not alarming anyone yet. There are many assessments done around the globe to ensure good quality child care such as ACEI Global Guidelines Assessment (GGA), Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale-Revised (ECERS-R), and Infant Toddler Environmental Rating Scale (ITERS) but Greece does not do these which is why these is uncertainty in quality of care children receive there.

Even though the assessments used (ACEI, GGA, ECERS-R, ITERS) were very reliable on telling us the quality child care it is not fair to us to tell them if their early childhood education child/care services are doing their job to sufficient quality. In different countries there is different opinions and views and that could lead to what they think quality is different from what we think so just because of the study done Greece cannot be told their child care is at a low level. I believe the article should have considered culture besides it does not only consider beliefs and values but also how children are raised in that country can greatly reflect how they are educated and to what level precautions are taken. You could say because of how they are cared for by their mothers with her cultural ways could influence greatly on the child’s developing progress. It is good that these studies are being done and if the Greek setting took note of the quality they put out and would maybe make implementations to their institutes with the way there system is being taken into consideration that would be a great positive
