A credential for administrators was developed to provide an incentive for center directors and family child care providers to obtain professional preparation in leadership of early care and education programs. The New Jersey Administrator Credential is competency based. The required practicum includes the 4-hour training on the Program Administration Scale (PAS) or the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS), as well as 10 hours of training on using the PAS/BAS to develop a Program Improvement Plan. Achieving an average threshold score for the PAS/BAS (3.0, 4.0, or 5.0 depending on the credential level) is required for credential renewal.
