NJ Child Care Champions

"In our own way we each have the ability to champion children of all ages. We simply have to see within ourselves the ability to be champions and be open to the challenges."
- Bob Danzig, Every Child Deserves a Champion

In 2008, CCANJ created three awards to formally recognize those who go above and beyond in furthering the field of early care and education. Each year since, the membership has nominated individuals and organizations that played a key role in driving innovative and effective solutions to some of the challenging early care and education issues facing New Jersey. These awards are designed to salute and applaud those individuals and/or organizations for significant accomplishments in the early care and education field, as well as their commitment and contribution to the community.
