When EC assessment dollars are tight, a comprehensive tool that identifies a broad range of program strengths and captures critical interactions is the perfect solution. Thanks to the authors for ECERS-3!" - Janice Carter, Arkansas State University, Childhood Services

"The ECERS-3 builds upon the solid foundation of best practice established in the ECERS-R, incorporating the importance of providing a high quality environment with new items and indicators that emphasize the importance of teacher/child interactions within the environment. The ECERS-3 provides a reliable instrument for teachers, technical assistants, and quality monitors to use to assure that children have experiences and relationships that support total child development." - Michele Bossers, retired associate director and ERS project manager of PA Key

Endorsement of the ERS Scales:

"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 Keyes, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Tulane University Director, Quality Start Assessment Team of Louisiana
