NOTE: These binders are for the new, CDA 2.0 Professional Portfolio NOT for the old process Professional Resource File.
I am no longer offering binders for the old process Resource File.
If you will need help finding and creating the resources to put into your binder, you will find the help you need in the CDA Prep Workbook. You can order a combo with both the Binder and Workbook. Scroll all the way to the bottom of this page to order a combo!
This combo makes perfect sense! A helpful Workbook and pre-assembled CDA Binder... What could be better?
Be sure to email me after ordering, with your CDA setting (Center-based Preschool or Center-based Infant/Toddler or Family Child Care) and your choice of cover designs!
Assembling the Professional Portfolio File can be time-consuming and tricky.
Although the Council leaves it up to the Candidate to decide on a way to keep all of the items together, I highly recommend that the Resource Collection, the Statements of Competence, and the Professional Philosophyy Statement be placed in a 1-1/2" ring binder.
A binder is highly portable, keeps everything inside, and is easy for the Professional Development Specialist to review.
It is important, however, that the binder be well-organized and carefully labeled throughout.
A Great Idea is Born!
One of my CDA students approached me and asked, "Wouldn't it be great if we could get a binder already set up with dividers, labels, and page protectors, so all we'd have to do was load our materials into it and it would be all organized the way the Council wanted it?"
I agreed this was a great idea and decided it was something that CDA Candidates would find very useful and time-saving.
Now, it is available only from this website, at a reasonable price... about the same as it would cost to buy all the materials and put a binder together yourself!
But we do it all for you!
