Since 1998, the Child Care Resource Center has been offering the Child Development Associate (or CDA) credentialing class and we continue to be the only provider of in-person classes in our region today. The CDA is an internationally recognized, entry-level credential sponsored by the Council for Professional Recognition (www.cdacouncil.org), and gives educators the qualifications they need to become directors and leaders in the Virginia child care community.
This year, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the Child Care Resource Center presenting the Child Development Associate class, we are introducing a new style of CDA class experience! We understand how busy you are. Rather than class meeting weekly, now you will attend class once per month for 2 hours, and complete assignments on your own.
