Program Administration Scale (PAS) and Business Administration Scale (BAS)

Our Quality Assessment Services (QAS) Department is offering providers observations and trainings. 15 child care centers will receive a Program Administration Scale (PAS) observation, which measures the quality of a program’s administrative practices and supports best practices in a variety of program contexts, helping to sustain high-quality learning environments at the classroom level. The team will also observe 15 family home child care providers for the Business Administration Scale (BAS) that measures and improves the overall quality of business and professional practices in family child care settings.


We offer Program Administration Scale (PAS) and Business Administration Scale (BAS) assessments. These assessments are not only beneficial for helping centers and family child care homes implement high quality business practices, they can also be used to earn credit for your Colorado Shines Rating!
