Having trained early childhood staff is essential to creating a quality childcare program. Unfortunately, you can’t always get your staff to attend training classes for various reasons. This leaves you, the employer, at a loss.
At Pratt Educational Services, Inc., we offer a program that brings the training to your staff. We have taught CDA (Child Development Associate) training classes for more than 20 years with an excellent success rate of students receiving their CDA. This course is available to clients in Greater Cincinnati and other areas in Ohio.
We developed the CDA program to:
Once a participant
finishes the whole program, he or she will be issued a certificate of
completion. They can apply for their CDA immediately after they receive it. We
will also help them through this process. It’s just that simple!
The CDA program is an online course. You can complete it anywhere from three to five months. We also offer face-to-face classes.
The tuition for the entire program is $600 per student for face to face, books are not included. The online course is $450, books are not included. You have three payment options:
If you choose to use the installment plan, the next payment is due the first of the next month. A late fee worth $12 will be added to your account for any payment made after the first, and a $20 service charge will be added for NSF checks. You will be locked out of your course if your account is denied, and a $50 fee will be added.
Keep in mind that the tuition must be paid in full before you will be issued a certificate of completion. We also do not offer refunds.
We accept payments made through PayPal. You can also make your payment over the phone with a credit or debit card. If you want to mail it to us, you may do so as well. Mailing address is P.O. Box 531642, Cincinnati, Ohio 45253
If you are a Preschool Promise site we are a vendor for payments for our online classes.
Remember: trained staff leads to retention, and retention leads to happy parents. We look forward to meeting you and helping you with your successes as an early childhood educator!
