Congratulations Emily Meschter Early Learning Center on obtaining a Five-Star Quality First rating from Quality First, a signature program of First Things First.
Obtaining a rating from Quality First: Things First, involved obtaining high scores on three assessments. The assessments included the:
Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS), this tool mandated that randomly chosen classrooms were assessed using a 30 minute cycle (20 minute observations, 10 minute recording) for three cycles. It observed three domains: emotional support, classroom organization, and instructional support.
Quality First Point Scale, which reviewed Staff Qualifications, Administrative Practices, and Curriculum and Child Assessment.
Environmental Rating Scale (ERS), which reviews seven areas within the classroom.This tool was not used during the assessment, since EMELC is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
