Child Care Aware NJ (CCANJ) is a non-profit organization composed of child care resource and referral agencies. CCANJ promotes a universally accessible, affordable & high quality system of early care & education that is responsive to parental choice. We believe that all children deserve access to high quality, affordable child care. We recognize that families need support in understanding and accessing the child care options in their community and we represent those agencies that help them do so.
