Workgroup Highlights and Related Work:

In 2021, the NCICDP, along with other ECE partners across the state released a Model Salary Scale for ECE Teachers. This scale built upon the early work of the Institute’s original salary schedules. In addition, members of the Institute Compensation Workgroup is finalizing a tool kit to assist administrators, higher education faculty and TA/PD providers in helping child care programs to implement a model salary scale to improve early childhood compensation.

In addition, a webinar was provided in October 2021 to introduce the ECE field to the Model Salary Scale and planned resources, such as the toolkit, being developed to support implementation of the salary scale. You can learn more about the salary scale and the history of its development by accessing the webinar here:
