Our CDA Academic Foundations certificate program is specifically for home learning providers, GSRP or Head Start teacher assistants or aides. Through our program, which focuses on excellence in early childhood education, you are prepared with the academic requirements to apply for your CDA Credential—Center Setting, Preschool, ages 3-5—from the Council for Professional Recognition, while you continue to work.
Baker's program begins in the fall, and you complete it within one academic year. In courses taught by early childhood educators who have extensive experience, you learn how to provide a safe and healthy learning environment in which children can develop physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.
As a successful program graduate, you'll be eligible to apply for your CDA Credential, the first step in a career devoted to early childhood education.
