Do your child care courses count toward the CDA or Child Development Associate credential?


We do not offer the CDA credential; only educational hours toward the credential.

Many of our child care courses count toward the 120 hour educational portion of the CDA; however, you are encouraged to go to the Council for Professional Recognition website to determine which courses fall into the various categories.

Please Note that the 120 hours of formal early childhood education training is only one step in obtaining your CDA. Be sure that you have submitted your application to the Council on Professional Recognition and that you meet the specific qualifications for CDA certification, which will allow you to proceed appropriately with your formal education and observational hours.
