Planning Programs for Young Children Using the Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale (FCCERS) and the Arnett Caregiver Interaction Scale, Level 1 (ENGLISH), 0.5 CEU
The Family Child Care Environmental Rating Scale (FCCERS) is a valid and reliable tool for measuring the quality of a family child care program. Resulting data can be used to make decisions and plans for program improvement as well as advancement on the Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS). Participants will become familiar with the FCCERS tool, the specific items it measures, and how to implement it in a family child care setting. Examples of recommended practices and useful strategies for planning program improvements will be shared. The Arnett caregiver Interaction Scale is designed to measure the emotional tone, disciplinary style, and the responsiveness of the educator. During this training, participants will review the organization and content of the Interaction Scale, practice using the tool as a self-assessment measure, and utilize the results to identify areas for improvement. Use of these tools in this manner serves to help educators plan programs that improve the environment and increase positive interactions with children. Register here.
