Our Impact

Hear what our students are saying about their experience in the CDA with CLASS program.

“I was very nervous at the start of this course because sometimes online classes can be difficult to navigate or understand. This course was very easy to make my way through and I understood exactly what the expectations were. It was easy to understand. I also learned a lot.”

“Taking the CDA definitely help me grow as a teacher. I have a different view now on what children can go through when they are not able to express themselves. In general, this course has helped me to become a better and stronger parent to my children.”

“Filling my professional portfolio has been such a rewarding experience, having something physically in my hand to look back on and review all my accomplishments makes me incredibly thankful and proud of all my hard work. I believe filling my binder with all of my accomplishments shows my motivation and dedication to early childhood development. I’m sad to say my journey is ending but there are so many more opportunities to expand my knowledge and accomplishments in my career choice. Thank you for following along on my journey to success!”
