QUALITY ENHANCEMENT & MAINTENANCE
The North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education issues Star ratings to qualifying child care centers and family child care homes. The Anson County Partnership for Children provides early childhood professionals in our community services and training to help them attain, increase, and maintain their facilities' Star ratings. Members of the Partnership's staff provide training and assistance at its offices and in the field, recommend and deliver developmentally appropriate materials for use in child care facilities, and promote young children's issues in our community and the importance of quality child care in the community..
Staff members provide guidance on such things as learning environments, Star rating scales, daily schedules, health, discipline, diapering, room arrangements, activities, sanitation, safety, health, behavior, and professional development - with the goal of enhancing the quality of care that children receive.
