CDA Professional Development

About Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential ™

The Child Development Associate Credential™ is a required credential for Early Childhood Education (ECE) professionals who want to build their career in the Early Childhood Education industry. Earning a CDA demonstrates to employers the competence in nurturing children's emotional, physical, and social development within the Early Childhood Education grade band, which can help advance one's career. In fact, in the past 12 months, there have been more than 40,000 jobs posted specifically for individuals with a CDA license nationwide. The top job posting is Childcare Teachers and Directors.

Every state has licensing requirements for ECE professionals, and they can be different depending on if you are an Elementary Teacher, Preschool Teacher, or child care worker. We offer workshops that will help you meet the National CDA Council requirements of 120 hours of professional training. In addition, this workshop is a Step Up to Quality training and an Ohio approved training. You can choose your focus one of the areas: 

  • Preschool
  • Infant/ Toddler
  • Family Child Care
