Competency Statement #1
Unit 1 Review
Unit 1 is designed to teach some of the basic procedures of cleanliness and infection control for keeping children and yourself healthy. As an early learning professional, you must be familiar with and understand the regulations. Ensuring the children’s health and safety is always your primary responsibility as an early childhood professional. Parents must be confident that their children will be safe in our programs. Supervision of the children is the most important of all expectations when working in an early childhood program. Supervision of children involves your full attention and participation in the activities and interactions that take place in the program’s facility, the classroom, on the playground and on field trips.
CDA applicants must complete a full 120 hours of training for professional early childhood education.
This course is designed to meet the educational requirements for the National CDA Credential. Once you complete all 8 Units, you will have the required formal education to apply for a Child Development Associate Credential.
