A reduced fee of $135 per person is available to groups of three or more from the same center or agency. Completing three sessions, over the course of a year, is required for certification. Classes meet once a week during each 14-week session.

The CDA program provides endorsements for professionals who care for children from birth through age 5 in childcare centers and family childcare homes. Texas is one of 46 states that lists the CDA in its childcare licensing regulations.

CDA students will learn to establish and maintain a safe and healthy learning environment, advance the physical and intellectual competence of the children in their care, support the social and emotional development of children and give positive guidance, establish positive relationships with families and ensure a well-run program responsive to participant needs.

Session I will run from Sept. 10 to Dec. 10. Session II begins Jan. 7, 2003 and ends April 15. Session III starts May 6, 2003 and ends Aug. 5.
