Services include:

  • On-site Technical Assistance
  • Training
  • On-going support for Infant-Toddler staff
  • Assistance with ITERS-R
  • Improvement Plans

For more information, please contact Joy Johnson, Infant/Toddler Specialist.


Research reports that social-emotional skills are directly related to school success and children are more likely to enjoy learning if they are introduced to them! Our scope of work is to focus on identifying, preventing and addressing challenging behaviors and promoting social competencies in children at licensed child care centers. Through coaching, teachers will receive 1-on-1 assistance to determine strategies that will teach children socially appropriate behaviors, help gain valuable insight with classroom management techniques, as well as provide tools that promote child-centered learning activities that promote social behaviors.

For more information, please contact one of our Behavior Specialists: Margaret Ufot or Robin Sink.


The Regional School-Age Services are provided through the DCDEE State Child Care Consultants for Randolph, Rockingham and Guilford Counties (Region 11) in North Carolina.
