WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Council for Professional Recognition (the Council) and the Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children (MiAEYC) are collaborating to promote the professional development of early childhood educators throughout the state of Michigan. One of MiAEYC’s initiatives is to support state colleges and universities offering courses that meet the CDA training requirements in coordination with the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Michigan scholarship program.

The scholarship offers learning opportunities for child care center teaching staff, preschool teachers, family child care providers, group home owners, center directors, administrators, and early childhood support professionals to meet their professional development goals, while continuing their current employment in an early childhood focused organization.

“One of the important outcomes of this partnership with MiAEYC will be to bring forth training that works with all Michigan colleges and universities in support of meeting educational requirements for CDA candidates,” said Valora Washington, chief executive officer, Council for Professional Recognition.

Both organizations will work together to ensure the courses offered to early childhood educators support the CDA’s Eight Subject areas and 13 functional areas. The Council and MiAEYC will also create co-branded webinars geared towards professional development and basic requirements to obtain the CDA credential.
