The North Carolina Early Childhood Integrated Data System (NC ECIDS) is the single source for integrated early childhood data for selected education, health and social services programs to help answer key policy and program questions. The mission of NC ECIDS is to create, maintain and enhance a high quality, comprehensive, integrated early childhood data system for North Carolina to inform policies and practices that produce better outcomes for children and families.

NC ECIDS was originally funded by the State of North Carolina through a federal Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge grant and is now maintained by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. We are pleased to announce upcoming updates to NC ECIDS through the support of North Carolina’s Preschool Development Grant.

  • Better decisions regarding use and refinement of early childhood programs.
