Friend, ACNJ and our partners NJ-AIMH, MSU CAECMH, C.I.T.E., NJAEYC, SPAN and NJ Breastfeeding Coalition have been excitedly sharing information for Celebrate Babies Week, and we hope you have been too! This year’s theme is “Embracing the Essential Role of the Caregiver.” During the pandemic, our caregivers have been essential workers, supporting the social and emotional growth of our babies every day during a stressful time.
Remember to join our webinar this Friday, October 23rd at 1PM, Celebrate Babies by Embracing the Essential Role of the Caregiver, in partnership with NJ-AIMH, MSU CAECMH, C.I.T.E., NJAEYC, SPAN and NJ Breastfeeding Coalition. Dr. Gerard Costa, Director of the Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health at Montclair State University will be discussing the science behind the essential role of the caregiver in all aspects of infant and toddler development, health and well-being. Register today!
