NJAEYC and CCA for Social Good to develop an Early Childhood Education (ECE) Shared Resources online platform
Over 2,000 New Jersey Child Care Providers to Receive Free Access to Resources that Support Quality Child Care
Launching in the summer of 2015, NJ Shared Resources will save time, reduce costs, and improve quality for childcare centers and home-based providers.
Manchester, NH – The New Jersey Association for the Education of Young Children (NJAEYC), and CCA For Social Good, a division of CCA Global Partners, are excited to announce they have entered into an agreement to develop an Early Childhood Education (ECE) Shared Resources online platform, to support the work of early child care and education professionals in New Jersey.
“Over 1,200 tools available on NJ Shared Resources will support child care directors in functions such as program administration, marketing, human resources, training, group purchasing, and more,” stated Denise Sayer, Vice President of CCA For Social Good. “The significant time and money savings realized by using the platform will mean less time tied up in handling paperwork, and more time available to spend in the classroom.”
“NJAEYC is committed to supporting high quality early education in New Jersey, “added Amanda Di Scala, President of NJAEYC. “The ECE-specific templates, forms, policies, and how to guides available on NJ Shared Resources will be a tremendous asset to our members, and will prove to ensure quality care for children in our state.”
The site, www.NJSharedResources.org, will mark the twenty-second ECE Shared Resources platform that CCA For Social Good will have launched by the end of summer 2015. The website will be made free to members of the NJAEYC.
