Families may have used their Arizona Parent Kit for information and resources about their child’s development and health but may have additional questions or need some more help.
Birth to Five Helpline
Call 877-705-KIDS (5437) for Free Child Development Support
For questions about dealing with tantrums, or anything else, ask the Birth to Five Helpline. Call toll-free or submit a question via their website and talk to child development specialists—it’s free. The Birth to Five Helpline is available for all families with young children looking for the latest child development information from experts in the field. Professionals may also take advantage of this free service. Staffed by early childhood development specialists, registered nurses, disabilities specialists, early literacy specialists, and mental health counselors, the Helpline provides a toll-free number for all Arizona families with young children, and parents-to-be, to call with questions or concerns about their infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
The First Things First Family Resource Centers can assist you, as a parent, with the tools you need to support the learning and healthy development of your child.
ASU Family Resources has information about agencies in the community that provide Emergency Child Care services. In addition, it is always a good idea to plan for back up care should your primary child care arrangements fall through (example: illness and/or calendar conflicts).
Faculty and Staff:
Sick leave may be used only when an employee is absent due to illness or communicable disease within the employee's immediate family, established household, or in situations that place primary responsibility for care on the employee.
Immediate Family is defined as: parent, parent-in-law, brother, sister, spouse, child, grandparent, and any other person who is a member of the employee's established household. If sick leave is not an option, ASU Family Resources has information about agencies in the community that provide Emergency Child Care services. In addition, it is always a good idea to plan for back up care should your primary child care arrangements fall through (example: illness and/or calendar conflicts).
