Adding coaching to Child Care Health Consultation (CCHC) services: Evaluation findings from North Carolina's Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge CCHC project

Child Care Health Consultation is an established mechanism for promoting high quality child care environments within the domain of health and safety. Funds from the RTT-ELC grant aimed to enhance this practice by explicitly infusing coaching strategies within CCHC service delivery. This was done by: 1) developing a coaching module to provide training in the coaching process and in five specific coaching strategies; 2) hiring three Regional Coaches to be trained in the module, and to subsequently use coaching in interactions with CCHCs; and 3) training current and new CCHCs in the coaching module so that they, with support and additional coaching from their Regional Coach, could integrate coaching in their interactions with ECE providers. RTT-ELC funds supported the evaluation study, which examined the impact of the coaching module, focusing on changes in CCHC practices (i.e., support from Regional Coaches, implementing coaching) and anticipated impacts on key service delivery outputs and outcomes for ECE programs and providers.
