Program Administration Scale & Business Administration Scale | Tennessee Star-Quality Child Care Program

Tennessee combines a required rated license and a voluntary quality rating system. If the administrator of a center or family child care home holds the Tennessee Early Childhood Program Administrator Credential (TECPEC) the child care program receives quality points towards a star level. The TECPEC is achieved through a combination of training based on the Program Administration Scale (PAS) or the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS), a demonstration of administrative competency (achieving a certain score on the PAS or the BAS), and college coursework in early childhood education and program administration. The TECPEC is administered through the Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance.
