YWCA Offering Child Development Class

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the YWCA. 

A 12-week course culminating in Child Development Associate credentials will be offered in
Pottstown beginning Saturday, Aug. 26. 

The course is a partnership between YWCA Tri- County Area and Dickerson Associates and Education Services.

Classes will alternate between YWCA Tri-County Area, 300 King St., and online.

Students without internet access will have opportunities to access online classes. In-person
class sessions will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

The course runs through Nov. 11.

Those completing the 12-week course will earn a Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential, the most widely recognized credential in early childhood education and a key stepping stone on the path to career advancement in the field. 

CDA is a National Credentialing Program that focuses on the skills of early care and educating professionals who work with young children. 

CDA meets the requirements of child care staff, home visitors, and family child care providers.

Cost for the class is $400, plus $50 for the required CPR/First Aid/AED training. Half the cost is
due at the first class.
