In 2004, North Carolina, through the NC Division of Child Development funding, established a Statewide Infant and Toddler Quality Enhancement Project. The Project goal is to improve the quality and availability of infant/toddler care in North Carolina. The Project team serves all 100 NC counties through Infant/Toddler Specialists housed in regional lead child care resource and referral agencies. A Project Manager, employed by Child Care Services Association, provides leadership and oversight of the project.

A statewide report on county, regional and statewide status of infant/toddler care, “Who’s Caring for Our Babies Now?” was completed in 2008. This report compares 2008 data to the baseline data for the project reported on in 2005/2006. The CCSA Research Department provided the data analysis, and the Executive Summary and complete report is available here.
