Empower is a collaborative effort throughout ADHS. The Bureau of Child Care Licensing enrolls centers and small group homes in Empower and monitors implementation. The Bureau of Nutrition and Physical Activity develops and provides materials, support, and training for Empower early childhood programs. More than 99 percent of Arizona’s child care centers and group homes are enrolled in Empower.

This first issue features all 10 Empower Standards, a Farm to Preschool update, physical activity videos, and information on Empower topic trainings, which are offered free of charge statewide. Sign up to receive the Empower Newsletter or information on other topics from ADHS today!
