Identifying the right childcare or preschool provider can be incredibly stressful for parents. It’s a decision that helps to lay the groundwork for a child’s future success. In Arizona, ACS client First Things First (FTF) has just launched a new website, QualityFirstAZ.com, to help parents identify what quality care looks like and find a quality child care and preschool setting that meets their needs.
The website and materials are built upon messages developed by FTF and ACS during the last several months. It offers families tools to help make informed decisions quality child care and preschool including, information about the importance of placing children in an environment that will prepare them for kindergarten, a checklist of questions to ask any potential childcare or preschool provider and a databse of providers who are participating in Quality First.
We’re proud to play a role in this important resource for Arizona’s children!
