Parents are constantly on the lookout for what is best for their children. Current research and the resulting legislation are rapidly raising the standards for quality child care.
A CDA Credential, in many states is a requirement for child care licensing. Family child care providers, just like their center-based counterparts, want to offer families the best possible program for children. The CDA Council has very specific standards by which it evaluates family child care (home daycare) programs and providers. It is important to understand what is expected.
You may have had the opportunity to look over a CDA Application Packet for Family Child Care Providers from the Council for Professional Recognition. Chances are, if you are like most, it probably seemed a bit confusing and you may be wondering if this is something you can do.
Or, you may have gotten to the point where you are thinking about dropping out of the process, even if it means losing your ability to stay licensed in child care. This is not an acceptable option, because the families in your program are counting on you to be their care provider.
It is for this reason I have dedicated the past 10 years to helping CDA Candidates.
Let me reassure you, with a little help, you can successfully complete the CDA process.
I have helped countless Candidates through the CDA process, both in the classroom and through this website.
Over the years, the demand for help has increased substantially and I was unable to keep up with the requests. I realized there needed to be a preparation manual for the CDA.
Fortunately, Redleaf Press shared my vision and the CDA Prep Guide is a reality! For more information see the CDA Prep Guide page.
