ECERS-3 also includes additional Items assessing developmentally appropriate literacy and math activities.

Designed for preschool, kindergarten, and child care classrooms serving children 3 through 5 years of age, ECERS-3:Provides a smooth transition for those already using ECERS-R.Emphasizes the role of the teacher in creating an environment conducive to developmental gains.Is designed to predict child outcomes more accurately and with greater precision.Provides a stronger method of distinguishing between good and truly excellent programs.Offers a complete training program with ongoing support available at the Environment Rating Scales Institute (ERSI) website (www.ersi.info).
ECERS-3 is appropriate for state and district-wide QRIS and continuous improvement; program evaluation by directors and supervisors; teacher self-evaluation; monitoring by agency staff; and teacher education. The established reliability and long term evidence of validity of the ERS family of instruments make this new version of ECERS particularly useful for RTTT-ELC accountability and research.

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

"ECERS-3 encouraged thoughtful steps towards consistent meaningful interactions. We were empowered to prioritise children's use of the space and, as is often the case in EYFS, we found that it was the interactions that mattered the most." -Polly Crowther, English lead in Kent and co-founder of Early Insights.
