                                                                                                                                                                          Want to improve the quality of care you provide for children?

The Child Development Associate (CDA) credential is a nationally recognized certification process for the child care field. A CDA requires 120 clock hours of professional development in specific categories. Join the growing number of professionally recognized child care providers by obtaining a CDA credential!

Attend NSU Child and Family Network classes to prepare for your CDA. Getting your CDA is an excellent way to meet the Child Care Center Director qualifications. These classes also count toward the clock hours required by the Child Care Licensing and Regulatory Section for Centers and registered Family Child Care Homes.

Textbook and Workbook: The textbook and workbook are required for all regular CDA courses. Contact NSU Child and Family Network if you need information about where to purchase them.

                                                                                                                             Notice:

An important change for the new CDA enrollment

And there’s still time to get in!

 

We know many of you were unsure what to do or worried about how to finish up with the changes in CDA.

 Here are the important facts:

 We can no longer offer the old CDA (the ones that are 30 hours long) after this spring semester

We want to do everything we can to help you finish up if you have already taken at least one of the old CDA 30-hour courses.

If you need a TA to help you, please call us. We can help you figure out if you can finish and which

is the best course(s) for you.

 Anyone new to CDA will need to take the New CDA course starting in January. This is the one that will be 45 hours long.
