The Child Development Associate (CDA®) credential is an important tool to support a more confident, well-prepared, and knowledgeable early childhood educator workforce in our community. Thanks to generous funding from the John & Janice Wyatt Foundation, Fairfax Futures launched a CDA® Mentoring Program in June 2021 to help keep participating educators on track for completing the CDA® in a timely manner.
We are pleased to share that the following educators obtained their CDA® credential…all in August!
Marianela Flores – August 2023
“I entered the CDA Mentoring program not knowing that throughout the process, I would gain valuable knowledge for working with children. It was quite a long road but in the end the result is worth it. This program, in addition to helping me obtain a CDA credential, helped me make connections with other people who formed bonds of friendship.” -Marianela Flores
Gimena Alba–August 2023
