ERS Project & Community Resources


The Advancement Team offers a variety of training related to the Environment Rating Scales, playground safety, Cultural Awareness, CLASS®, and best practices. During COVID, we have transitioned most of our training to virtual formats. In virtual training, you will experience interactive training that is engaging and content-rich. Trainings are offered throughout the year for the community, see the button below to see the training offerings and how to register. Want customized training? Want to schedule training for your next professional development day or staff meeting? Contact Linda Franklin to get more information about scheduling training. 

In addition to training, the Advancement Team provides a variety of services to the community upon request. To learn more, see the button below to view the external quality improvement (QI) services we offer. 


We have developed a virtual ERS certification process for coaches wishing to obtain Clayton ERS Certification in ECERS-3, ITERS-3, and FCCERS-3.
