Welcome to the NJ Registry !

The NJ Registry is an on-line database which records and recognizes a person’s education, training and work experience in the field of early childhood education, afterschool, and primary education! Our goal is to help participants track their annual professional development hours while providing data about the NJ early childhood workforce. Participants will be approved at one of the ten levels on the NJ Registry Career Lattice, based on their education and experience.

Joining the NJ Registry

Joining the Registry is simpler than ever, since it is done on-line and there is NO membership fee. You will be asked to enter your personal information (ex: name, address, phone, e-mail address, etc.) and your current employment information. Once you have completed your profile, you can mail proof of education (required) and fax or e-mail your training certificates (optional), which will be entered into your NJ Registry profile. If you have an existing account that has “Expired,” you do not have to create a new account; you will just need to renew your membership. For specific details about required documentation, please click on “Submit Documentation” on the left-hand side of the website.

NJ Registry Enhanced Training Module

Community Coordinated Child Care of Union County and Family Strength Associates, Inc. have entered into a joint collaboration with Professional Impact NJ (PINJ). Both agencies are using the NJ Registry database to conduct registration for their agency’s trainings. Therefore, participants who wish to register for a workshop hosted by either agency must first become a member of or renew their membership with the NJ Registry.
