Where does this information come from?

Child care providers are required to report to the New Jersey Department of Children and Families when a child is seriously injured or dies in care, even if it wasn’t the result of a rule violation. In addition, they are required to report when a child is abused in child care. The Department also receives complaints from parents or others regarding children’s safety.
