 Preschool Science

Marvelous Explorations Through Science and Stories: MESS is a science-centered early childhood curriculum enhancement. The goal of MESS is to foster children's language development, literacy development, problem solving, curiosity and motivation, and general knowledge through science experiences.

MESS includes 10 month-long units that are appropriate for 3- through 5-year-old children. Each unit includes field-tested science experiences, suggestions for ways to integrate each topic across the curriculum, lists of recommended books and science materials, and ideas for involving families in children's learning at home and in other settings.

ECERS - 3 
 Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale, Third Edition (ECERS-3)
The Third Edition of the ECERS is a major revision that introduces innovations in both the content and administration of the scale while retaining the continuity of the two principal characteristics of the ECERS, namely its comprehensive or global definition of quality and the reliance on observation as the primary source of information on which to base assessment of classroom quality. 

The Scale consists of 35 items organized into 6 subscales:

  • Space and Furnishings
  • Personal Care Routines
  • Language and Literacy
  • Learning Activities
  • Interaction
  • Program Structure
