BrightStars promotes the importance of providing safe environments to children and we see the incredible value of independent outdoor play without barriers. Outdoor play as an essential part of a child’s development. It provides opportunities for children to advance physically, emotionally and intellectually.
In order to better support programs, BrightStars has recently revised their Environment Rating Scale (ERS) reports and supplementary materials. These revisions reflect a thorough review of several QRIS and their report systems. The new reports are different in three important ways: 1) The reports are more customized to the specific classroom observed, 2) the reports focus specifically on areas where programs can make the most meaningful improvements and less on sanitation and procedures and 3) they reports have further integrated positive feedback so that programs can reflect on practices they may wish to continue or expand.
