Choosing a Scale

There are four environment rating scales, each designed for a different segment of the early childhood field:

 
School-Age Care Enviroment Rating Scale
Ages 5 to 12
Early Childhood Enviroment Rating Scale, Revised Edition
Ages 2 1/2 to 5
Infant/Toddler Enviroment Rating Scale
Birth to 2-1/2
Family Child Care Early Childhood Enviroment Rating Scale
Infancy to School-age

“The Environment Rating Scales have proven to be an invaluable resource for assessing the quality of child care classrooms. These comprehensive tools truly allow providers to see classrooms through the eyes of the children they care for and the results obtained offer clear feedback that helps teachers improve and grow.”
Angela W. Keyes, Director, Quality Start Assessment Team of Louisiana
