Date: March 9th – 10th, 2012

Location: The DoubleTree Hotel in Somerset, NJ

2012 promises to be a very exhilarating year for the professionals who care for New Jersey’s infants and toddlers!

CITE has been an active participant in the development of the state’s first Birth to Three Early Learning Standards. YOU will have the opportunity to be a part of this important enhancement to the early care and education arena at this year’s conference.

CITE is an all volunteer, non-profit organization that was founded in 1984 to support the emerging need for professional development and support of infant/toddler teachers and administrators who provide infant/toddler programs. CITE’s mission is “to provide quality infant and toddler care and education by building collaborations; providing professional development opportunities, support and resources; and by influencing public policy.” Our vision is that “high quality early care and education is available to every infant and toddler in the state of New Jersey through a coordinated system of early childhood and family support programs that offer healthy, social/emotional learning environments and educated, responsive caregivers.”

CITE has been instrumental in the creation of many of the infant/toddler initiatives that the state has implemented in recent years, including the New Jersey Infant/Toddler Credential, which is administered in partnership with Professional Impact NJ (PINJ), to educate infant/toddler professionals and paraprofessionals in center-based and family child care programs.

CITE offers professional development through our annual conference by bringing together the best minds and talent in early care and education – with an emphasis on infant and toddler development and learning activities – from all over the country. Your attendance at the conference will give you the opportunity to learn from these experts and earn up to 12 hours of professional development. In addition, you will get to network with state and local leaders, your peers in center-based and family child care settings, and others working in the field of early child care and education.

We invite you to join us at the conference to learn about what’s new and to be a part of this exciting event!

Terri Buccarelli, President
