A. Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale (ECERS-R)

ECERS-R Book Cover

The revised ECERS contains inclusive and culturally sensitive indicators for many items. Also, new items have been added on Interaction (staff-child, child-child and discipline), Curriculum (nature/science and math/number) Health & Safety and Parents & Staff.

Scale consists of 43 items organized into 7 subscales:

  • Space and Furnishings
  • Personal Care Routines
  • Language-Reasoning
  • Activities
  • Interactions
  • Program Structure
  • Parents and Staff

Featuring a new spiral binding, the updated ECERS-R offers more practical assistance in the form of an Expanded Scoresheet (which contains a worksheet) and additional notes for clarification to improve accuracy in scoring. However the items and indicators remain the same as in the ECERS-R.
