2021 Building bright futures: Arizona’s early childhood opportunities report


This document provides state-national comparisons in three key areas: strong families, healthy children and prepared students. In the following pages, additional data points – and trends at the county level – also are identified. Where available, information about the initial or potential impacts of COVID-19 also are provided. Taken together, these data points reveal opportunities across several areas to help more Arizona families provide the stable, nurturing environments children need in order to thrive. This brief also describes ways in which First Things First and its partners in Arizona’s early childhood system are working to expand opportunities for children to develop the tools they need to be ready for school and set for life.
