CDA Gold Standard

The Comprehensive CDA Gold Standard℠ was awarded to ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI) following a quality review of their training and student services by the Council for Professional Recognition (the Council). The CDA Gold Standard℠ is part of the Council’s early childhood education effort to help CDA course students find the high-quality training and student services they need in preparation for the CDA exam and a career as early childhood educators.

As a participant in the CDA Gold Standard℠ pilot, ChildCare Education Institute successfully demonstrated that its early childhood education training is based on the Council’s three industry-leading principles:

  • Alignment with the CDA formal early childhood education coursework found in the CDA’s Eight Subject Areas.
  • Sound business policies and practices.
  • Quality student services that meet their educational and professional needs.

“We believe that our new CDA Gold Standard℠ adds value and integrity to the early childhood profession by verifying connections between the Council’s proven teacher competencies and the quality of training resources available to CDA students,” said Valora Washington, chief executive officer, Council for Professional Recognition.

In addition to offering high-quality training, CDA Gold Standard applicants must provide evidence that they serve the CDA course student community with excellence, which includes professional development that prepares students for successful completion of their program.

“It’s exciting to think about the many young children, families, and communities that will benefit from the high-quality education and training students will receive from ChildCare Education Institute, a CDA Gold Standard organization,” Washington added.
