We are excited to release our Fall 2023 newsletter, Equipping Early Educators: Through Training, Technical Assistance, Tools. This newsletter is filled with tips and resources on health and safety trainings and technical assistance. We invite you to read and share the newsletter with early educators in your network.
More than 230,000 babies and young children attend licensed child care centers in North Carolina. New rules adopted by the NC Commission for Public Health will ensure that all of those children are drinking water that is free from hazardous lead contamination.
This is a big win for young children in our state. One of the simplest things we can do to promote children’s healthy brain development is to make sure their drinking water is free from lead. Kudos to the NC Division of Public Health for their leadership on this important issue.
The Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE) shared information about child care rule changes taking effect March 2019. Rules address minimum requirements for two through five star rated licenses.
For details regarding these changes, view the March 2019 Child Care Rulebook and enroll in the DCDEE Moodle training tool. Each individual user will need to have an NCID to participate in Moodle training. If you do not already have an NCID, use this link to get one: https://ncid.nc.gov/ncidsspr/
Rule training modules can be found in the same course as the October 2017 Child Care Rule Rollout. If you are unfamiliar with the Child Care Rule Rollout within Moodle and how to navigate, please visit:
