Child Care Providers, We Thank You For Shaping Young Minds!

Child care providers have always been the backbone of society, helping parents go to work while ensuring infants and toddlers have a safe place to explore and grow.

On Friday, May 7th, we celebrate Child Care Provider Appreciation Day, a special day that recognizes child care providers, teachers, family child care home providers and other educators of young children for their invaluable impact on young minds. Those first few years of life lay the foundation for the rest of a child’s life, affecting everything from classroom performance, to earning potential, to life expectancy.

We thank you for your hard work and dedication to our children -
today and every day.

We Want To Hear From You!

Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) is conducting a survey to learn more about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected infant and toddler child care centers. The findings will help advocates and policymakers better understand the issues and challenges of providing this type of child care and identify potential supports that could assist centers in serving this population. Please complete this short survey so we can continue to support you throughout this difficult time and advocate for your needs.


Join Us May 17th for the First Webinar in the #ReimagineChildCare Policy Series

The child care system has been under duress since before the pandemic. Inadequate government funding and unlivable wages have created a system that is unsustainable for both parents and providers. We have a chance to reform the child care sector. Join us for our #ReimagineChildCare webinar series, as we explore ways that we can improve the child care system to be better for babies and those who care for them.

The May 17th town hall will include diverse voices from the field, including professionals from both child care centers and family child care homes. Please join us to add your voice and amplify the needs and rights of this essential workforce.

Lawmakers need to hear from parents. It's time for parents to get down to business and tell them what babies need. Parents will meet to work on solutions to share with state leaders on how to help address the child care crisis.
