Congratulations to CDA Graduates

Congratulations to CDA Graduates

June 28, 2023


The Child Development Associate (CDA®) credential is an important tool to support a more confident, well-prepared, and knowledgeable early childhood educator workforce in our community. Thanks to generous funding from the John & Janice Wyatt Foundation, Fairfax Futures launched a CDA® Mentoring Program in June 2021 to help keep participating educators on track for completing the CDA® in a timely manner. “This spring several candidates have received their CDA®,” shares mentor Ana Hoover. “The CDA® Mentoring Program is responsive to individual needs and continues to support educators through group, individual, and peer mentoring.”


We are pleased to share that the following educators obtained their CDA® credential in recent months:


Sandra Myers – April 2023


Maribel Garcia Velasco – April 2023


Sandra Chica – April 2023


Hilda Garcia – May 2023


Sudharani Nekkalapud – June 2023

“The CDA Mentoring Program allowed me to assess myself and my program.  While I discovered I’m doing well, the process showed me how much I can still grow in my field...and I appreciate that. Thank you to everyone that made this program possible. Examining how I do business has improved my family child care environment and for that I’m grateful.” — Sandra Myers



Congratulations to these ladies!
