This checklist can be a helpful starting point for self-assessing quality in your environment and making a plan for improvement.  The checklist is based on the NAFCC Accreditation Observation Checklist.  For more information on creating a high quality environment check out the module: Creating a Child-Centered and Multi-Age Space on the Grow page under the Town Square Modules tab.
