Employee Relations

Happy April, everyone! As we jump into spring, it is a great time to evaluate your program’s culture and your contributions to that culture. At this point, many have forgotten all about their New Year’s Resolutions or their intention for the year. Some people may have even reverted to old habits. This is a good time to reflect upon the elements of your team dynamics. Every member of the team is responsible for maintaining the culture of the program, but as always, guidance from leadership is essential.

Sterling, VA

I earned my Self-Study CDA Preschool Certification from ChildCare Education Institute.

CCEI's CDA Certification program content and format was clear and very well organized for me to study at my own pace. Lessons and handouts helped me prepare for assessments and provide a solid understanding of the course material.

Completing CCEI's online CDA Certification program gives me personal satisfaction and confidence at work and strengthens my professional capabilities. Our center encourages CDA Credentials and incentivizes staff to pursue CDA Certification through pay increases once the program is completed. I highly recommend CCEI to anyone in ECE!
