The BAS for Family Child Care is the first valid and reliable tool for measuring and improving the overall quality of business and professional practices in family child care settings. It is applicable for multiple uses, including program self-improvement, technical assistance and monitoring, training, research and evaluation, and public awareness. The BAS for Family Child Care is designed to complement the widely used Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale®-Revised (FCCERS-R), page 9. When used together, they provide a comprehensive picture of the quality of the family child care learning environment and the business practices that support the program. Available in English or Spanish.
