CDA Portfolio

Does anyone know what goes into a CDA portfolio, especially a CDA portfolio for preschoolers? Does anyone or can anyone give or tell me what goes in a CDA portfolio item by item?

Go to the CDA website. Everything you need to know is there. Just google CDA credential, and it will come up!

The CDA portfolio is a notebook of your completed assignments from each chapter of the workbook. I don't have my book in front of me, but it is documentation of learning and you need to have things like:
1) a list of children's books, 2) local resources, 3) a lesson plan, etc. You also have to have some observations of your teaching by a qualified professsional, and a survey by parents. It is not any easy program to complete. You also have to have many hours of acceptable training.

To complete this portfolio you need a reference book from the CDA. It does list everything item by item.

You can access the information about what you will need on line for free. If you intend to apply for your CDA you will have to purchase the packet and application.
