Getting the CDA Credential


Why get the CDA Credential?

The Child Development Associate (CDA) assists early childhood education professionals meet current state and national requirements. States across the nation are in the process of developing Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS) to assess child care programs and centers. Professionals who possess a CDA credential are oftentimes more eligible for a pay raise than their counterparts who do not.


What does the CDA entail?


The CDA is 120 hours of study in the following areas:

  • Classroom/Outdoor environment
  • Child development and learning
  • Families and community
  • Program implementing
  • Professionalism
  • Observing and assessing children
  • Special needs
