Arizona AEYC is joining Childcare Aware of America in calling on Congress to support early childhood programs.
Please act now! Tell your Members of Congress to include dedicated support for child care in their COVID-19 response.
Congress must provide specific funding that will allow child care programs to weather this growing public health and economic crisis, and preserve the nation’s supply of family child care and community-based child care programs. Act on your values and contact your U.S. legislators. Childcare Aware makes this communication easy by following this link to their website:

NAEYC and AzAEYC have been connecting early childcare providers with these resources in response to schools re-opening:
· Guidance Related to Childcare During COVID-19 (American Academy of Pediatrics)
· Child Care, Schools, and Youth Programs (CDC)
With this web-based platform, meeting complex state and federal requirements are simply a click away! AZToolkit offers many of the resources needed to successfully advance through the quality continuum – all in one central location and consistent with the national shared resources and services initiatives.
