Arizona Early Childhood System Development

The Lastinger Center has partnered with Southwest Human Development and the Helios Foundation, the leading early childhood organizations in Arizona, to create the Arizona Educare Professional Development Institute.

This comprehensive professional development system will serve as a leading early learning professional workforce development entity to promote excellence in learning and care for the most vulnerable populations. We have designed and launched a blended online instructor certification as well as professional development leadership courses for program directors that grow and strengthen instructional and programmatic practices across all systems.
