What’s New with the New Jersey Infant/Toddler Credential?

Did you know that as of February 2015 over 100 infant toddler “educarers” (teachers/caregivers) have been awarded the New Jersey Infant/Toddler Credential?  In fact, according to Professional Impact New Jersey (PINJ) 116 educarers have completed the work which includes 6 hours of college credit that emphasize infant toddler development; specifically social and emotional development. These successful professionals also completed personal essays, portfolios of their work experience, and made a commitment to the field of infant and toddler care giving.  Congratulations to all who have completed the Credential!

Did you know that 60% of the credentialed educarers are from Essex, Hudson, Passaic or Bergen counties?  Passaic County Community College is currently offering the coursework for earning the Credential.  There is a class in process now and registration is open for a summer cohort.


Earning the Credential raises your career level in the PINJ registry, increases your knowledge of infants and toddlers and strengthens your commitment to being professional.
