There are many types of child care providers and there are different rules and regulations that pertain to each. The descriptions below and the requirements outlined should start you on your path to becoming a child care provider.
Interested in becoming a provider? Your first step is to join the NJ Workforce Registry. All providers are required to register at https://www.njccis.com/njccis/home/login
The NJ Workforce Registry, allows early childhood and school-age professionals to maintain a record of their experience, education, professional development and credentials in a central location. Additionally, it provides the workforce access to professional development resources, information and training opportunities.
When fully phased in, NJCCIS will be an integrated child care information system, for both the Department of Children and Families, Office of Licensing, and the Department of Human Services, Division of Family Development. NJCCIS will provide a single point of access to information on child care licensing, family child care registration, inspections, and complaint information – as well as the NJ Workforce Registry and Grow NJ Kids.
