5/29/20: FCCH Providers - Are you interested learning more about a Self Study process? If so, there are three new documents about this topic that were developed with DCDEE. The documents are FCCH Self Study (click on each title to access): General Information, Key Points and Ideas for Getting Started, and Planning and Self Reflection Form Examples. You can also click on the "Resources" tab on our home page and then skim down the list to find all three documents that have titles beginning with "FCCH Self Study."
3/17/2020: For reasons related to COVID-19, NCRLAP will postpone conducting assessments until we receive further guidance from the DCDEE. For programs with current assessment windows, as the situation becomes more clear your scheduler will be in touch with a new scheduling window or an extension to your existing window. There are many pending assessments and we will be working with Child Care Consultants to understand licensing priorities and specific circumstances. We understand this is a time of uncertainty and that programs are working hard to make the best decisions for the children and families they serve.
Feel free to email us at NCRLAP@uncg.edu to communicate changes or ask questions.
A new Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (ITERS-3), Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (ECERS-3), and Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (FCCERS-3) have been released. There are no immediate plans for child care programs completing North Carolina's Environment Rating Scale assessment process to transition to either of these new editions. At this time, the Division of Child Development and Early Education and the North Carolina Rated License Assessment Project will continue to use the ITERS-R, ECERS-R, and FCCERS-R.
