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 is designed to complement the widely used Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale-Revised (FCCERS-R). 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.

Business Administration Scale for FCC is the long awaited companion to the widely used Family Child Care Environment Rating Scale - Revised (FCCERS-R). Experts in the field of family child care have long recognized that there is more to quality child care than a great environment and curriculum - it must be partnered with professional business practices. The BAS is the first tool of its kind to look at how a FCC provider runs their business, providing insight to where improvements can be made and success for children and families can be raised. I highly recommend this tool to providers looking for guidance and those who mentor providers to reach their full potential. Review by Patricia Dischler, Author "From Babysitter to Business Owner"
