[VIDEO] Quality Early Learning Environments for our Youngest Children

by Expect More Arizona

More than half of Arizona children under the age of six are cared for by someone other than their parent during the work day.  Regardless of setting, it is critical for all children to have access to the highest quality settings so that their social, emotional and developmental needs are met.

Some characteristics of quality child care settings include:  safe, healthy environments; highly educated teachers; classrooms and materials that stimulate learning at different stages; and low teacher to child ratios so that children get the attention and care they need.

Watch the video below to take a virtual tour and learn more about components of a high quality learning environment for young children.

Special thanks to Phoenix Day for providing their assistance and expertise in the video.
