ECERS / ITERS Interactions

ITERS: applicable to Infants, Toddlers, Twos and Jr. PS Classrooms

ECERS and ITERS are tools used by Youngstar in their evaluation of quality and in giving "star ratings" in Early Learning programs throughout Wisconsin. Youngstar places a large focus on classroom environments. ECERS and ITERS recently came out with the third edition. These new editions place an increased focus on INTERACTIONS within the classroom, rather than just the physical environment itself.
There are many different pieces to ECERS and ITERS; however, at this time for the purpose of this continuing ed opportunity, we want to focus on the interactions portion.
View the interactions section of ITERS/ECERS below (as applicable), complete the corresponding worksheet and submit to the Director for continuing education credit.
