Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale for Preschool and Kindergarten

The long-anticipated new version of the internationally recognized Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, ECERS-3, focuses on the full range of needs of preschool- and kindergarten-aged children. This widely used, comprehensive assessment tool measures both environmental provisions and teacher-child interactions that affect the broad developmental needs of young children, including cognitive, social-emotional, physical, and health and safety.

Revisions have been made in both content and administration of the scale while maintaining its emphasis on observation as the foundation for assessment of quality. The Scale contains 35 items organized into subscales including:
  • Space and Furnishings
  • Personal Care Routines
  • Language and Literacy
  • Learning Activities
  • Interaction
  • Program Structure
