In addition to the myriad of responsibilities you have as the administrator of a child care program, you must ensure licensing and professional development for your staff. In many states, the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential plays a crucial role in this process. In fact, in some programs, the CDA is often the backbone of minimum standards for staffing. If you have asked your teachers to get the CDA Credential, your responsibility has really only just begun. As the administrator, you must be a source of support and help to your staff as they earn a CDA. In this webinar, led by Debra Pierce, author of The CDA Prep Guide: The Complete Review Manual for the Child Development Associate Credential, you will learn:
- The steps involved in the CDA process.
- Why your center must meet the standards required by the Council for Professional Recognition.
- The best ways to be an advocate, mentor, and active participant in the CDA process.
- The top 5 mistakes a director can make that can derail the credentialing process.
Everybody wins in the CDA process… Why not let it begin with you?
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
