A new Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (ITERS-3), Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (ECERS-3), and Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (FCCERS-3) have been released. There are no immediate plans for child care programs completing North Carolina's Environment Rating Scale assessment process to transition to either of these new editions. At this time, the Division of Child Development and Early Education and the North Carolina Rated License Assessment Project will continue to use the ITERS-R, ECERS-R, and FCCERS-R.
