No one has a greater impact on the quality of early care and education than the people who work with children every day.  Consequently, CCR&Rs across the country provide ongoing professional development opportunities to child care providers and staff to impact that quality.  By supporting accreditation and quality improvement programs, helping create financial incentives for education, partnering with higher education, and advocating for better compensation for providers, CCR&Rs help improve the quality of care for all children.   

CCR&Rs conduct annual training surveys to determine the training needs of early care and education and school-age child care professionals.  Based on survey findings and knowledge of the field’s needs, CCR&Rs offer a calendar of training opportunities that are available to participants that address the topics approved by the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE). 

The three NC CCR&R Council Management Agencies have received The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) approval to offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs).  Training and/or CEUs provided by CCR&Rs is typically open to all and may be delivered at the local CCR&R or at a community site.
