Why This Indicator Matters

Children need safe, nurturing and enriching environments where they can grow and learn while their parents work. Parents need affordable, reliable child care so they can be productive employees. And, employers need staff who come to work with peace of mind, knowing their children are safe and happy.

Registered family child care providers care for a maximum of five children at a time in their own homes.  Family child care providers who register voluntarily thorough New Jersey's Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies are required to meet state regulations primarily related to health and safety concerns.
