The Children's Development Academy (CDA) is a non-profit preschool providing high-quality learning programs to children whose families otherwise couldn't afford it. The brain development that happens in the first five years of a child's life impacts their success in school and life. The CDA's vision is Best Start. Brightest Future. Every Child.
