You help Arizona’s children thrive. We help you do it.

Our children thrive because of you. From snack time to nap time, you’ve made it your mission to look out for the little ones—
creating a brighter tomorrow.

Because learning starts from birth, First Things First funds Quality First to help early care and education providers improve the quality of their programs. That’s why participating in Quality First is free for regulated child care centers, homes and preschool programs in Arizona.

We partner with more than 1,300 programs like yours. When you join, we’ll provide the resources you need to make improvements to help the children in your program learn.

More resources. Better programs.

As a participant in Quality First, you’ll have a system of support that listens to your needs and helps make your program even better.
