“As the industry leader for online professional development training for over 12 years, we are honored to be recognized by the Council for Professional Recognition and awarded the coveted Comprehensive CDA Gold Standard℠ for our high-quality curriculum and exemplary student services,” said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of ChildCare Education Institute.

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:

  1. Alignment with the CDA formal education coursework found in the CDA’s Eight Subject Areas.
  2. Sound business policies and practices.
  3. 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 student community with excellence, which includes professional development that prepares students for successful completion of their training 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.
