Environment Rating Scales

These scales are designed to assess process quality in an early childhood or school age care group. Process quality consists of the various interactions that go on in a classroom between staff and children, staff, parents, and other adults, among the children themselves, and the interactions children have with the many materials and activities in the environment.

  • Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, Revised Edition (ECERS-R) – program quality assessment instrument designed for preschool, kindergarten, and child care classrooms serving children 2 1/2 through 5 years of age.
  • Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale, Revised Edition (ITERS-R) – designed for use in center-based child care programs for infants and toddlers up to 30 months of age.
  • School-Age Care Environment Rating Scale (SACERS) – a resource for defining high-quality care and assessing levels of quality in child care programs offered by schools and other organizations.
  • Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale, Revised Edition (FCCERS‐R) – designed to assess family child care programs from children infancy to school-age.
