home-visitorHome Visitor program continues to grow as a strategy for targeting families, pregnant women and children from birth to age 5 years.

The latest federal Head Start/Early Head Start regulations now require Home Visitors to “have a minimum of a home-based CDA credential or comparable credential, or equivalent coursework as part of an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.”

The Council is proud to offer the field of home visitation the standards for training, evaluation, and professional recognition for their Home Visitors.

We invite you to learn more about the national CDA Home Visitor Credential as a valuable opportunity for Home Visitor educators to demonstrate their competence in delivering high-quality learning experiences for families, to earn professional recognition and to meet national regulations.
