I am very excited to have this opportunity to tell you about the
accomplishments of the New Jersey Child Care Association (NJCCA!) We
have monthly meetings and workshops for all our members, 2013 will bring
our third annual "Partners in Education" Conference, we have a Facebook
page to keep you informed, and we have a lobbyist who protects our
interests in Trenton. The NJCCA is an organization for you - the owner
and directors or preschools - as well as for other leaders in the field
of early childhood education.
The NJCCA provides a forum for your
ideas and serves as your voice in Trenton. At our monthly meetings you
can learn about the latest research in early childhood education,
current events, and legislative proposals and licensing requirements
that impact our school programs.
The NJCCA also sponsors
monthly seminars geared to the needs of owners and directors. Some of
our previous presentations have included Gigi Schweikert on "How Do I
Get People to Get Their Jobs Done? Helping Adults Succeed"; Rick Ellis
on "Difficult Parents - Creating a Win Win"; and Don Mallo on "Unions
and Freedom of Choice Act." Bob Kane presented a workshop on
"Successful Workplace Communications." Joe Lancelloti, Abbie Kohut, and
Brenda Fabbio spoke about marketing our programs and keeping up with
the new social media. David Manhire has conducted workshops on
insurance issues. Presentations and workshops always take place at
10:30 am. Can you think of any easier way to add two hours of training
to your credentials each month?Visit our Facebook Page!

of our members are volunteers, so our organization is only as strong as
our membership! You are welcome to visit a meeting to learn more about
the NJCCA. We meet on the last Wednesday of every month at 10:30 am at
80 Kingsbridge Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854.
We are very excited
about our "Partners in Education" Conference on Saturday, April 13. It
promises to be an outstanding event with Gigi Schweikert as the keynote
speaker and presentations by other greats in the field of early
childhood education such as Michelle Barnea and Lynette Galante! Watch
for updates on our website at www.nj-cca.org or our Facebook page - New
Jersey Child Care Association.
"Week of the Young Child" is
April 14-20. This year's theme is Early Years are Learning Years."
Let's work together to make these early years special for our children,
families and teachers!
