Effective immediately, Montgomery College will be awarding the following coursework when students complete the Child Development Associate (CDA) National Credentialing Program, administered through the Council for Professional Recognition:
3 credits for EDUC119, Intro to Early Childhood Education
3 credits for EDUC115, Health, Safety, and Nutrition for Young Children.
The 6 credits can be used for the Early Childhood Education Technology AAS: 315 and only 3 could be used for the Early Childhood Education/Early Childhood Special Education AAT: 604.
The CPL website (http://www.montgomerycollege.edu/academics/credit-for-prior-learning/index.html) has been updated.
Please note, WD&CE provides training for students that are very close to completing their CDA! This may be a more cost-effective way of receiving credit for EDUC 115 and 119 especially for Child Care Providers or Paras from MCPS. For questions, please contact Nelida Andres at 240-567-3827.
For any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Nelida Andres or myself.
Hope this makes your week, we are only the second college in Maryland to do this and the fourth in the entire region!
