A Child Development Associate (CDA) is an individual who has successfully completed the CDA assessment process and has been awarded the CDA credential. According to the National Council for Professional Recognition, Child Development Associates are child care professionals that are able to meet the specific needs of children and work with parents and other adults to nurture children's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth in a child development framework. Earning the CDA credential has many advantages, including motivating caregivers toward continuing education and providing a platform for professional and career opportunities. Many view the CDA credential as an instrument for career advancement in the early childhood care and education profession, as it has national recognition.
