School-Age Care Environment Rating Scale
Thelma Harms, Ellen Wineberg Jacobs, and Donna Romano White
The School-Age Care Environment Rating Scale (SACERS) helps define high-quality care for school-age children and assess levels of quality of care in school-age programs. SACERS consists of 49 assessment items organized into seven categories: space and furnishings, health and safety, activities, interactions, program structure, staff development, and supplementary items for children with special needs. SACERS can be used by afterschool program staff for self-assessment, by directors as a program-quality measure for planning program improvement, by agency staff for monitoring, by staff development programs, or by parents concerned about quality care for their children. The scale is particularly useful for research and program evaluation of school-age programs. (168 pages)
