The BAS for Family Child Care is the first valid and reliable tool for measuring and improving the overall quality of business and professional practices in family child care settings. It is applicable for multiple uses, including program self-improvement, technical assistance and monitoring, training, research and evaluation, and public awareness. The BAS is designed to complement the widely used Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale-Revised (FCCERS-R). When used together, they provide a comprehensive picture of the quality of the family child care learning environment and the business practices that support the program. With the BAS for Family Child Care, providers can easily set goals to incrementally improve business practices that will result in better communication with parents, financial stability, reduced risk in operating a home business, and compliance with legal requirements. Using a 7-point rating scale (inadequate to excellent), this easy-to-use assessment instrument measures: Qualifications and Professional Development - Income and Benefits - Work Environment - Fiscal Management - Recordkeeping - Risk Management - Provider-Parent Communication - Community Resources - Marketing and Public Relations - Provider as Employer
