WASHINGTON, DC — Over the last year, the Council for Professional Recognition has seen growth in the number of candidates seeking to earn the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential™ and to best serve the growing community, the Council has redesigned its website to provide a modern and seamless experience to anyone who comes to the website.
The Council spent the last eight months gathering feedback from various stakeholder groups, including current and prospective CDAs, with the goal of providing an intuitive, user-friendly experience.
The new website features include:
- Modern look and feel with easy-to-use functionality
- Self-identified options for the user (e.g., educators, parents)
- Entire site available in Spanish
- In-depth search options
The Council’s CEO, Dr. Calvin Moore, Jr., says, “We are thrilled that more people are interested in earning their CDA. I believe every educator working with young children should have the skills gained from this credential. The new website will allow new and existing members of the community a streamlined experience.”
Visitors to the new website can learn more about the pathway features through our latest blog, A New Website for a New Era: 7 Pathways Designed for You.
