We’re excited to announce our new Child Development Associate (CDA) class partnership with Central Virginia Community College (CVCC)! The college is going to provide a space for us to teach the class on their campus. This course gives early childhood educators the knowledge they need to complete the CDA exam, which is essential to earning the CDA credential that gives educators the qualifications they need to become directors and leaders in the child care community. Your contribution helps build partnerships such as this that leads to strong foundations for the future of our community — our children.
The class will run at CVCC from Jan. 14-Oct. 6, 2016, and is limited to 30 people. Learn more today!
