Child Development Associate (CDA)

CEU: 12 or 120 hours | 30 hours a module

A Child Development Associate (CDA) is an individual who has successfully completed a CDA assessment and has been awarded the National CDA Credential from the Council for Professional Recognition. The CDA is accepted as the required training hours for Family Day Care Accreditation and is a requirement for lead teachers in a child care center according to the minimum qualifications in the NYS day care regulations.

Prior to applying for the CDA Credential Assessment, each candidate is required to complete 120 clock hours of formal child care education in eight different categories, which are offered through our CDA courses. Participants must be working in a child care setting.

CDA Courses at Child Care Council, Inc. are designed for potential candidates to complete their 120 hours, assist with the development of competency papers, and create a professional portfolio. CDA Courses are available in the evenings. Classes meet weekly and are from 6:00pm - 9:00pm.

The program cost is $425.00 per module (1700.00 total) and a one time non-refundable $125.00 registration fee. NYS Educational Incentive Program Scholarships may be available to providers. To receive assistance with CDA course registration, call (585) 654-4720. New classes have a note below.

CDA is offered in four modules. You may apply for more than one module at a time within a calendar year. Classes are first come, first served. Call for information regarding joining in modules that are already running if space is available.
