What is E-Child Care?pfp_annual_2014_page_01_image_0002

e-Child Care or ECC is the way parents receiving a child care subsidy check their child in and out of care.  It records child care attendance and absences and is also how your provider gets their state subsidy payment.  Parents or their designees confirm that child care was provided to their children by using either a telephone or a swipe card system.

This technology improves accountability in the child care subsidy program and strengthens and updates business practices in New Jersey’s child care industry.
