Our Empower Program just launched its new and improved website. You’ll recall that Empower is our program that works with more than 2,400 licensed childcare facilities across the state of Arizona reaching more than 200,000 children. Each provider receives a discount on their licensing fees and in return commits to implementing 10 standards that empower kids to make good choices about nutrition, physical activity, sun safety and tobacco.

The work behind the new website was big and the outcome impressive.  We designed it so it’s quick and easy to use.  It includes a wealth of resources on the implementation of each standard including policies, teacher activities, parent handouts, videos and more. One of the newest features of the website is the sharing of success stories. We’re encouraging providers to share their Empower success stories among their peers so they can learn from each other.

A Big Thanks to everyone who helped with the website and special thanks to the communications Team and the Web and New Media Team for all their help and patience while we all crafted this- you are all awesome!
