NJACCRRA is Now Child Care Aware of NJ
We are excited to announce that in February 2016, NJACCRRA officially became Child Care Aware of New Jersey (CCANJ) to align with our national organization, Child Care Aware of America. While our name may have changed, our mission - to promote a universally accessible, affordable and high-quality system of early care and education that is responsive to parental choice - remains the same. As a member of the nation's leading voice for child care, Child Care Aware of New Jersey is in the forefront of the national agenda to elevate safety and learning standards for the more than 11 million children in America in child care and ensure the highest quality child care is affordable and accessible to all families.
