What is the NJ Infant/Toddler Credential?

The NJ Infant/Toddler Credential is a qualification earned by teachers, family child care providers, and paraprofessionals who have demonstrated their knowledge of infant/toddler mental health: social/emotional wellbeing, child development with a focus on infants and toddlers, and their skills in working with infants, toddlers and their families.
