The Early Childhood Environment Rating Scales has been widely used in early years education since the last edition was published in 2010
This new edition extends the innovate scales to reflect changes in policy and practice and to increase its appeal to both UK and international audiences.
The scales track 'emergent' literacy and numeracy that is continuous through early development and supports it by informal, rather than formal, pedagogy.
Originally devised as a research tool, previous edition sales show it was increasingly used by Local Authorities during audits to assess and improve the quality of provision and by practitioners seeking to improve their practice through professional development
Since the pandemic there is global recognition of the need to provide practical support for children who have suffered adverse educational and care experiences, and the new edition provides a powerful holistic tool to enable this.
Authors deliver training around the world using this framework, including Australia, China (where their session was attended by 48,000 practitioners), Singapore and Hong Kong.
Original edition sold 13,576 units and has been translated into 8 languages.
