Hilton Hotel, East Rutherford

Please join us at the NJAEYC Annual Meeting and Panel Presentation

What’s Next for Private Childcare Centers in New Jersey’s Push for Public Pre-K?

Governor Murphy recently released his first budget and proposed an $83 million increase in preschool funding – $25 million to continue the expansion funded from last year and another $58 million to expand preschool to 3 and 4-year-old children in more communities. It is the first step in a four-year phase-in to fully fund preschool expansion.

We’ve collected a diverse panel to have conversation with to help us to have better answers (and better questions) as to what this means for private providers going forward. Panelists include: Ellen Frede, PhD Senior Co-Director, National Institute for Early Education Research; Ruth Piatt – Director, Little Lamb Preschool-Keener Kids, Inc.; Maryanne Preztunik – Pre-K Our Way; Cynthia C. Rice, Esq, Senior Policy Analyst, Advocates for Children of New Jersey.

Come prepared with questions for our panel or submit them ahead of time to

This presentation will follow the introduction of the new slate of Board officers for 2018-2019. If you are interested in serving on the NJAEYC Board please go to for more information.

Free for members! *** (As space is limited, include a $10.00 check with registration; your check will be returned when you sign in at the hotel.) $25.00 fee for non-members. A certificate of attendance will be provided.
