Childrenâ€™s Lighthouse at Alamo Ranch is honored to announce that over half of our teachers have begun the process of obtaining their Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential.The CDAcredential is awarded in the United States to those who have completed a list of requirements, including 120 hours of training, set forth by the Council for Professional Recognition, and who have successfully passed the verification visit to work with Infants/Toddlers or Preschoolers.
CDAs must be able to work with parents and children, and be competent in 17 Functional Areas, as outlined by the Council for Professional Recognition. The CDA is a national credential and has been accepted in all 50 of the United States, and the U.S. Territories.
This is just one more step that Childrenâ€™s Lighthouse and its dedicated staff have taken to ensure that the children in our care receive the very best early childhood education available.
Congratulations to all our teachers!
