Unlock Your Early Childhood Education Career with a CDA Credential

image in article Unlock Your Early Childhood Education Career with a CDA CredentialAre you passionate about nurturing young minds and building a fulfilling career in early childhood education? The Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential can be your key to unlocking a world of opportunity. Not only is it a nationally recognized symbol of your dedication to the field, but it also aligns perfectly with Oklahoma's Professional Development Ladder (OPDL) requirements.

Oklahoma's OPDL and Your Career Path:

According to Oklahoma regulations, all early childhood teaching personnel must hold a current OPDL certificate within a year of employment. This ladder system offers progressive levels of qualification, with higher levels leading to increased responsibility and potential salary increases.

Here's where the CDA comes in:

  • Director Level: To qualify for the Bronze level, the Oklahoma Director's Credential is required. Earning your CDA can help you progress further by fulfilling the training requirements for the Master Teacher level, which mandates OPDL Level 4 or higher.
  • Family Child Care Provider: Even as a family child care provider, an OPDL certificate (Level 1 or higher) is necessary. The CDA allows you to climb even higher on the OPDL ladder, reaching Level 5.
