Quality Assessments

Child360 offers an exemplary early education assessment service led by highly trained individuals who use industry standard tools to measure the quality of early childhood environments and the interactions between teachers and children in these settings.

We conduct classroom observations and elevate classroom quality through the following tools:

  • Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale-Revised (ECERS-R)
  • Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale-Revised (ITERS-R)
  • Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale-Revised (FCCERS-R)
  • Infant CLASS
  • Toddler CLASS
  • Pre-K CLASS
  • Program Administration Scale (PAS) (formally certified)
  • Business Administration Scale (BAS)

All Child360 early education assessment staff are trained to reliability by Child360 anchors. All anchors obtained reliability from the Environment Rating Scales Institute (ERSI). The majority of Child360’s assessment staff hold advanced degrees and are reliable on multiple early childhood assessment instruments.

The value and accuracy of [the CLASS] evaluation are borne out in research conducted in thousands of classrooms showing that children… whose teachers have high CLASS ratings make greater gains in reading, math and social skills.
