We are excited to share that our CDA Program is expanding! In collaboration with SUNY Schenectady County Community College, we are offering credit-bearing courses that lead to the Infant-Toddler Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential. The program, funded through a federal grant known as the PDG Birth to 5 grant, started this spring semester and provides individuals already working in child care settings with the opportunity to take these credit-bearing courses at no cost. We are delighted to partner with SUNY to create pathways for the region’s early childhood educators.

SUNY Schenectady County Community College recently shared the good news on their website. The article provides an overview of the program and features a CDA student, an Early Childhood Professor, and the Institute’s Executive Director and University Dean of Early Childhood Initiatives at CUNY, Sherry Cleary.
