Help Stock the Classrooms

Back to School is a little different at the CDA. The CDA provides 200+ children from low-income families access to high quality early education that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford. Each child that enters the CDA is given all the school supplies they need to achieve a high quality early education. Our parents or teachers are never asked to purchase supplies, classroom decorations or other essential items. Those necessary, but expensive items are required in abundance to maintain our NAEYC and Georgia 3 Star Quality accreditation.
We depend on YOU to help us stock the classrooms with everything they need to be successful not just on day one, but throughout the year.
