Atlas Training was developed in 2019 as a training program in child development. The primary goal of the program is to provide entry-level or non-credentialed teachers in the early childhood field with opportunity to earn the nationally recognized CDA Credential. Administered by the Council for Professional Recognition in Washington, D.C., the CDA Council is a leader in the credentialing of early childhood educators worldwide and has issued more than 800,000 credentials since 1975.
Since the time we started our program, we have grown to offer new initiatives as our leadership is focused on supporting ALL adults who work directly with young children. As we prepare to move in to our third year of operation, we are expanding our CDA Training to include training in Spanish as well as training for the renewal of the CDA.
