External Quality Improvement Services

Looking for training and observation services using the Environment Rating Scales™ (ERS) and the Classroom Assessment Scoring System® (CLASS)? We can help with that! Our classroom experts maintain reliability with the Environment Rating Scale Institute (ERSI) for ERS and maintain certification with Teachstone for CLASS®. In addition to classroom assessment, we specialize in playgrounds, having Certified Playground Safety Inspectors and National Program for Playground Safety Inspectors. All of our trainers not only have many years of experience in the field of early childhood, training adult-learners, and conducting assessments but also continue to assess classrooms using ERS and CLASS® tools for various projects across the state. Our trainers are in the field doing the work, uniquely enabling them to provide the most current information and assessor tips from the field. Training is rigorous to maintain this expertise, thus, you can always expect a high-quality experience. Not in the Denver-Metro area? We can come to you for all trainings and services.
