Join us for Regional and County-based focus groups designed to capture the state of Arizona’s child care network. We will be hearing directly from providers on issues that matter to you – staffing, hiring, availability of open slots, resource needs, modernization and other business practices that will help DES and its partners continue to invest in the most important challenges and opportunities emerging for child care providers today.
Child Care providers are encouraged to include program directors and staff. The meeting will feature live polling, and opportunities to share directly with DES Child Care leadership.
For those unable to participate in the live polling, please consider sharing your perspective by clicking on this form.
**We are encouraging regional and county-based groups as we plan for an ongoing series offered in person and virtually. To the extent you are able, please register for the call in the county you provide child care in below**
