A new Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (ECERS-3) is being released. There are no immediate plans for child care programs completing North Carolina's Environment Rating Scale assessment process to transition to the new Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (ECERS-3). At this time, the Division of Child Development and Early Education and the North Carolina Rated License Assessment Project will continue to use the ECERS-R.
NCRLAP began using the SACERS-U, the new spiral bound version of the School-age Care Environment Rating Scale (updated) on July 1, 2014. Want to learn more about this updated tool?
