Share your story on quality child care for NJ infants and toddlers.

ACNJ has been conducting a series of studies, including focus groups and a statewide survey, to capture the issues and challenges in delivering high quality child care for infants and toddlers.  Data is being collected from child care centers and family child care providers across the state to learn more about: 

  • availability of infant-toddler child care
  • costs involved in providing high-quality care
  • current issues and trends impacting the delivery of infant-toddler care in NJ.

Findings from these studies will be released in early 2017.  If you have a story to share about your experience with infant-toddler child care we want to hear it.

Conference addresses educational needs of kids affected by lead

Lead exposure continues to impact thousands of families across New Jersey and more action is needed to help children already affected by it. Last month Peter Chen, ACNJ Staff Attorney, participated on a panel at a conference in Princeton aimed at addressing educational needs for children poisoned by lead. The conference was organized by Isles, Inc., a community development organization in Trenton, and by the Education Research Section and the Center for Health and Wellbeing of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School.

The conference highlighted the importance and challenges of identifying and servicing children that are affected by lead early on.  The many interventions and resources that do exist to help children were also shared.
