This report summarizes themes that emerged from six listening sessions held in April 2022 with Black and Latine Pre-K teachers, directors, and technical assistance providers. The purpose of the listening sessions was to understand participants’ perceptions of the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale (ECERS-3) and to gauge the extent to which the tool is culturally grounded.
