Working in a high quality childcare program requires staff to have a CDA credential, which can be costly. Our Child Development Internship Program provides interns the opportunity to work toward obtaining this important credential while getting paid!
What is a CDA?

The CDA® prepares those seeking opportunities to work in early childhood education to meet children’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.
