The Children's Development Academy (CDA) enjoys a rich history of broad support, built over the past four decades. Focused on families with limited income in our community, the CDA can serve 156 children each day ages 12 months through 5 years in our full-day early care and learning program, including three Georgia Pre-K classes.
The CDA is 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.
In July 2015, the CDA 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.
In addition to early care and learning at the Children's Center, the CDA offers drop-in services at two Kids Express locations.
