*Note about the data used in the following reports:
Reports downloaded from Community Indicators>Quality for all Children FY 2011-2012
Star Rating information may be obtained from the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education.
Early care and education (ECE) quality is measured by the average star ratings of child placements in facilities rated 1 – 5 stars (PLA40a) and the percentages of children in 4– and 5-star-rated facilities (PLA40b). Average star rating of child placements is calculated for children in 1 – 5 star facilities only. Percentage in 4 and 5 star care is calculated based on all children in regulated care, including those in facilities with temporary and GS-110 licenses. Description of the star-rating system can be found at Star Rating Explained.
The Smart Start minimum standard is met with an average star rating of at least 3.25 or at least 50% of the children in 4– and 5-star-rated facilities. When both of these minimum standards are met, the county is considered to have met the high performing standard.
When calculating averages and percentages for PBIS PLA40 the following data sources are used: NC Department of Child Development and Early Care and Education (DCDEE) Regulatory Enrollment, NCPreK, Title I, and Head Start.
The DCDEE Data Warehouse provides data on ages of children in regulated childcare centers and homes. DCDEE regulatory data do not include child race/ethnicity or gender. No demographic data are available for Head Start or Title I. Because of this, children in Head Start and Title I are not included in the figures and tables showing results for subgroups of children.
Please note that the figures only include data when there are more than five children within an age group in regulated care. Age groups with five or fewer are blank in the graph and appear as n/a in the data table.
Data tables include a category entitled “Other”. This category includes facilities that are rated as having zero or no stars. Facilities in this cat
