ERS Project & Community Resources


The Quality Advancement Team offers a variety of training related to the Environment Rating Scales, playground safety, and best practices. We offer both in person and virtual training. Clayton training, whatever the format, is high quality, interactive, and engaging. You will leave training with things you can apply directly to your work and equipped with resources. Our trainers are also in the field doing the work, so they have extensive knowledge on the subject matter, unique insights to share, and stay current with the ever-changing early childhood field. Trainings are offered throughout the year for the community, see our Courses and Workshops to view training offerings and register. Want customized training?
