NJ Parent Link

  • On June 1, 2019, the State of New Jersey celebrated the anniversary of NJ Parent Link, The Early Childhood, Parenting and Professional Resource Center http://www.njparentlink.nj.gov.

    NJ Parent Link contains information from 10 state departments, 25 community partners, and is supported by the federal Early Childhood Comprehensive System (ECCS) Program Grant. New Jersey's Department of Health and Senior Services is the lead agency for the project. 

    The focus of NJ Parent Link is to meet the information and resource needs of expectant parents, families with young children (newborns to children entering kindergarten) and professional stakeholders vested in the health & well-being of New Jersey's children & families. Parenting and support resources for families with older children, school aged to young adulthood, are also available.

    The goals of NJ Parent Link are to improve the accessibility, coordination and delivery of information and services to expectant parents and families with young children; to improve the communication capabilities between the public and private sectors; and to provide the IT foundation for interagency service collaborations and policy development. 

    Website links are designed to facilitate parents' and professionals' use of government services and stakeholder resources all related to early childhood health, development, early learning, parenting, and family support. Materials for the site are downloadable, including the NJ Parent Link homepage.
