Input Needed on Early Care & Education in NC

If you care about early care and education in North Carolina, the NC Institute for Child Development Professionals wants your feedback. This includes families, Early Educators (serving children ages birth to twelve), family child care home providers and center teachers), directors, consultants and specialists, college instructors, researchers, funders, policy makers, and more.

In North Carolina we are fortunate to have programs and policies that have supported an early childhood professional development approach that is among the nation’s best. We want to continue to improve our strategies in order to recruit and retain qualified early care and education professionals. Your anonymous input is critical to guide these efforts appropriately.

The NC Institute for Child Development Professionals and the NC Division of Child Development are working together to collect information to better understand the strengths and limitations of North Carolina’s early childhood professional development approach.

By early childhood professional development we mean programs, policies, and funding supported by public and private sources to educate, compensate and retain a high quality and stable early care and education workforce.

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Click on the link below or copy and paste it into your browser.

You will not be able to reenter your survey; so plan to complete your survey in one sitting. All surveys must be completed by May 10, 2010.

Survey responses will be considered in the development of a state-wide Professional Development Plan for North Carolina that will inform changes to the current system.
