Montclair State University University Hall – 1020

For more than four decades, Dr. Handler dedicated her life to best practices in infant and early childhood care and education.  As Professor Emerita in Early Childhood Education at Kean University, she educated generations of leaders in the field. She is the primary Co-Founder of CITE – the Coalition of Infant/Toddler Educators. An authentic social activist, she convinced Crayola to change their “flesh” color to “peach” – because skin is of many colors!  Through her infectious hope, magic and excitement to see beyond the horizon, and her insistence that infants and toddlers be recognized as unique members of society, she has given a voice to those who have none. Her book, Infants and Toddlers as Members, Makers, Interpreters: A Philosophical Journey, remains a record of the deepest respect and insights about infants and young children.
