Guilford Childcare Development

Regional Specialists

RCCR&R Regional Specialists offer a cross section of professional services to childcare staff and children/families through special enhancements. Our staff includes Infant-Toddler Specialists, Behavior Specialists, and School-age Specialists.

Infant-Toddler

Infant-Toddler Specialists support quality improvement for infants and toddlers in licensed childcare settings by providing in-depth technical assistance and training to infant and toddler teachers and center directors or family childcare providers. Infant-Toddler Specialists are funded through the NC Division of Child Development and Early Education, and are certified in areas such as Program for Infant Toddler Care (PITC), Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL), and ITS-SIDS.

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 Jennifer Anderson, Infant/Toddler Specialist.

Behavior

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 childcare 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 Hortense Lucas, Healthy Social Behavior Specialist/Supervisor or Margaret Ufot, Healthy Social Behavior Specialist.

School-Age

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. RCCR&R and other representatives from Rockingham and Randolph CCR&R staff are also trained in school-age curriculum and can offer specific topics in school-age program domains including:

  • State required Basic School-age Care (BSAC) training
  • Standardized School-age Care Environmental Rating Scale training (SACERS), and
  • On-Site Technical Assistance Consultations for programs striving to achieve temporary licensure or increase to a 3, 4 or 5 star status

For more information, please contact Justine Newman or Ayana O’Neil.
