Mentoring and Evaluating Services

The Early Educator Support Unit, located within the Division of Child Development and Early Education (DCDEE), serves as the statewide Local Education Agency (LEA) for all nonpublic early childhood education teachers who hold, or are eligible for NC Birth-through-Kindergarten licensure.  As such, the Early Educator Support Unit oversees and provides licensure support. 

The Early Educator Support Offices at the University of North Carolina (UNC Charlotte) and East Carolina University (ECU) support the professional growth of teachers through classroom-based coaching and observations, demonstration site visits, ongoing professional development, and access to professional learning groups to support teachers in implementing best teaching practices. This is necessary to provide high-quality early learning experiences for the more than 8,000 children attending these classrooms annually.
