Job Description

For over thirty years, Southwest Human Development, a non-profit organization, has been reaching out to children and families in Arizona with comprehensive and innovative early childhood services. From small beginnings - a staff of six serving 175 children and families - Southwest has grown into the state’s largest early childhood provider with a staff of 700 serving 135,000 children and families each year. Throughout this growth we have remained true to our mission.

At Southwest Human Development we strive to give all children an optimal start in life with opportunities for a bright and positive future. Several decades of research clearly demonstrate that each child’s earliest experiences and relationships establish the foundation for all future development - intellectual, social, emotional, physical and behavioral. A child who starts life and school with a healthy foundation is at a distinct advantage. We at Southwest Human Development are committed to creating a positive future for all young children.

Best Places To Work” & “Healthiest Employers” Awards

For the fifth consecutive year, Southwest Human Development was voted one of the Valley’s 2012 “Best Places to Work” among large-sized companies. The survey, independently administered by the Phoenix Business Journal and Quantum Workplace, looks at employee life, workplace environment, leadership, culture of the organization and management practices.

Southwest Human Development has also been awarded the
Phoenix Business Journal’s 2013 “Healthiest Employers” award for the second year in a row among mid-sized companies. This survey ranks applying organizations based on responses to questions in a number of categories, as well as scoring and benchmarking developed by academic, medical, wellness and business communities.

These surveys let everyone in on something our staff already knows - Southwest Human Development is a great place to work!
