About the CDA

The Children’s Development Academy enjoys a rich history of broad support, built over the past five decades. Focused on low-income working families in our community, we serve up to 200 children each year ages 12 months through 5 years in our full-day early care and learning program, including three Georgia Pre-K classes.

We are NAEYC-accredited (National Association for the Education of Young Children), the highest level of accreditation available to any education program, with a curriculum committed to preparing children to be “ready by five” for school success.

We also received the highest rating of three stars from Georgia’s Quality Rated program. The Quality Rated system was designed so that any parent selecting a program participating in Quality Rated can feel confident that they are enrolling their child in a program that is committed to continuous quality improvement and higher quality standards.


Best Start. Brightest Future. Every Child.
