The Council for Professional Recognition requires current CDA holders to renew their credential every three years to ensure the quality of care and education provided to young children. The CDA Renewal with CLASS program provides 45 hours of reading, interactive learning and assessment. The learning experience is flexible and can meet the needs of learners seeking continued educational training for the CDA or for professional development.
While there are many CDA programs available, there is only one program with CLASS®. Teachstone provides educators with the research-proven insights, skills and strategies needed to improve the most critical component of teaching quality - interactions.
The CDA Renewal with CLASS consists of six units of study covering the content required for renewing the CDA credential, as well as, the basics of the CLASS tool. The program provides flexible access and scheduling with multiple enrollment options throughout the year.
Engaging Content And Community
The program comes to life with authentic classroom videos to demonstrate best practices that you can immediately apply in your own classroom. With access to the CLASS Learning Community, you will benefit from peer-to-peer discussion, facilitated feedback and strategies to enhance classroom interactions.
Experienced Online Facilitators
The CDA Renewal with CLASS is supported by online facilitators who monitor and participate in discussion threads, provide feedback on assignments and encourage engagement with weekly messages and communication. When you need help, your facilitator is there to provide support and encouragement.
