CDA Program Details

Through the program, early learning professionals:

    • focus on Competency Standards and Best Practices that support healthy early development in young children;
    • complete online coursework;
    • receive support from an experienced instructor; and
    • will be eligible to receive a nationally recognized credential upon completion.
