First Things First, in collaboration with the Arizona Department of Economic Security, is in the process of studying the costs providers incur in delivering child care at different levels of quality.

Burns & Associates, Inc. (B&A) is assisting First Things First with this initiative and has established this website as a repository for study-related materials.

A key factor in this effort is a provider survey to collect data regarding providers’ service delivery designs and costs, which is available for download below:
