The Whole Child Concept

Our preschool programs provide each child with personal growth opportunities, a rich and secure learning environment and a chance to develop a variety of warm and meaningful human relationships. We offer a planned program of educational development and creative activities employing the whole child--physical, emotional, intellectual and social.   Click here to learn more about each of these objectives

Curriculum Overview

CDA is funded through the California Department of Education and offers a year round, full or part day, educationally based preschool program. The curriculum utilized by all our preschool centers is based on the California Preschool Learning Foundations and Frameworks and the Desired Results Development Profile (DRDP) assessment system.  These program standards and assessment tools were developed by the California Department of Education (CDE), to increase program quality in early care and education programs and to ensure children enter the elementary school system ready to learn and be successful. Click here for a complete overview of the CDE's Child Care and Development Programs.


CDA’s preschool program uses an integrated, emergent approach to curriculum that capitalizes on the strengths of the individual child, develops areas that need improvement, is developmentally appropriate, and embraces diversity. Emergent curriculum is an approach that permits learning activities to arise out of each child's interests, actions or unanticipated events.


Our curriculum is designed to include the seven domains of the California Preschool Foundations and Frameworks to ensure school readiness, is child-centered and reflects the philosophy and goals of CDA.

Our neighborhood has an abundance of little kids, but not enough preschools. And this is a gem.

The moment your walk through the door you feel it- an energy for teaching and inspiring little ones.
