It considers practice that supports children aged between two and five years of age in developing skills in sustained shared thinking and emotional well-being, as well as developing strong relationships, effective communication and aspects of self-regulation. It is designed to be used for research, self-evaluation and improvement, audit and regulation.Using the SSTEW scale alongside other environment scales (including ECERS-E, ECERS-R or ITERS-R) gives users a more complete picture of what high-quality early childhood education and care can look like. It is aspirational in that it considers high quality pedagogy and practice. It can be used by researchers, heads of centres, managers, teaching staff and practitioners, as well as advisory staff and in professional development.

Physical development is a key component of the curriculum in the great majority of countries. But so far there has been no valid means of assessing the quality of the child's physical experience or the pedagogy and environmental quality of those physical experiences. The Movement Environment Rating Scale (MOVERS) is a new method of measuring the quality of environment and pedagogy in which young children are encouraged to move and be physically active. It applies the methodology used in the ECERS-E and SSTEW rating scales, making it easy for educators already familiar with these well-established scales to adopt. MOVERS has four sub-scales: * Curriculum, environment and resources for physical development * Pedagogy for physical development * Supporting physical activity and critical thinking * Parents/carers and staff MOVERS is an invaluable tool for research, self-evaluation and improvement, audit, and regulation.

Building on extensive feedback from the field as well as vigorous new research on how best to support infant and toddler development and learning, the authors have revised and updated the widely used Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale. ITERS-3 is the next-generation assessment tool for use in center-based child care programs for infants and toddlers up to 36 months of age. ITERS-3 focuses on the full range of needs of infants and toddlers and provides a framework for improving program quality. Further, the scale assesses both environmental provisions and teacher-child interactions that affect the broad developmental milestones of infants and toddlers, including : language, cognitive, social-emotional and physical development, as well as concern for health and safety. The established reliability and validity of the scale make it particularly useful for research and program evaluation. While the approach to assessing quality and the scoring process remain the same, users will find the following improvements informed by extensive use of the ITERS in the field and by the most recent research: enhanced focus on interactions and the role of the teacher; six new language and literacy items; a new item on beginning math experiences; expanded age range to include children from birth to 36 months; a new approach to scoring based solely on observation of ongoing classroom activity; the elimination of the parents/staff subscale and teacher interviews, freeing up time for observing more actual classroom practice; improved indicator scaling, providing more precise and useful scores for use in professional development and self-improvement; reduced emphasis on the number of materials, along with greater emphasis on how materials are used to encourage learning; suitable for use in inclusive and culturally diverse programs. The subcales evaluate: Space and Furnishings; Personal Care Routines; Language and Books; Activities; Interaction; Program Structure.
