Quality Preschool Initiative

CDA is proud to be a participant in the First 5 San Diego Quality Preschool Initiative. The Quality Preschool Initiative is funded through First 5 San Diego to support a comprehensive quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) that encourages program assessment, goal setting and monitoring of progress that ideally leads to improved program quality. Participating programs must meet the Quality Preschool Initiative quality criteria and are granted a quality tier rating based on meeting that criteria.  CDA’s programs are routinely rated at the highest tier levels.

Two of CDA’s Preschool Programs (Finney and Parks) have been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) for meeting rigorous health, safety, and education standards. CDA’s newest location, Hilltop, will begin the process soon. The Accreditation process identifies high quality child care centers and preschool programs. By being Accredited, parents and the community are assured that children are receiving the highest quality preschool experience. Click here to learn more about accreditation.
