The revised ECERS contains inclusive and culturally sensitive indicators for many items. Also, new items have been added on Interaction (staff-child, child-child and discipline), Curriculum (nature/science and math/number) Health & Safety and Parents & Staff.
Scale consists of 43 items organized into 7 subscales:
- Space and Furnishings
- Personal Care Routines
- Program Structure
- Parents and Staff
Featuring a new spiral binding, the updated ECERS-R offers more practical assistance in the form of an Expanded Scoresheet (which contains a worksheet) and additional notes for clarification to improve accuracy in scoring. However the items and indicators remain the same as in the ECERS-R.
