Arizona's QRIS: Quality First
Quality First is Arizona’s quality improvement and rating system.
A signature program of First Things First, Quality First partners with child care and preschool providers across the state to improve the quality of early learning for young children birth to age 5.
Quality First has established a statewide standard of quality for early care and education programs and funds quality improvements that research proves help children thrive. This includes training for teachers to expand their skills in working with young children and coaching to help programs provide learning environments that nurture the emotional, social, language and cognitive development of every child. Almost 1,000 child care and preschool programs voluntarily participate in Quality First. Enrollment may be limited.
Through the Quality First website, First Things First also offers parents information about the importance of quality early care and education and what to look for in child care and preschool settings that promote learning.
