CDA Awarded 2017 California Nonprofit of the Year

Exciting news! On June 28, 2017, CDA was awarded 2017 California Nonprofit of the Year! Assemblywoman Shirley Weber selected CDA as an exceptional nonprofit organization in her 79th district community. We were honored to join nearly one hundred other nonprofits at the 2nd Annual California Nonprofits Day Event which took place at the State Capitol.

I share this award with each and every CDA team member. It is through hard work and dedication to our families, children, and providers that we create positive change in our community.

Charlene Day 2017

Celebrate Charlene Tressler Day - June 1, 2017!

Charlene had limitless energy when it came to providing and improving the quality of child care services and her efforts did not stop at CDA. At the local level, she served as Chair of the San Diego County Childcare and Development Planning Council for ten years and served on San Diego’s First 5 Commission. At the state level, she was a member of the Department of Social Services CalWORKs Child Care Advisory Workgroup and California Alternative Payment Program Association (CAPPA) Governing Board among other professional organizations.

 

Charlene touched and inspired many people in the early childhood education field, but most importantly she gave CDA its vision to create positive change. Join us in celebrating our founder’s day!

Important Notice For Providers

Alternative Payment agencies, like CDA, are being asked by the California Department of Education (CDE) Early Education and Support Division (EESD) to notify child care providers about changes in the child immunization requirements that took place on January 1, 2016.  Senate Bill 277  changed the immunization requirements for children in child care and public and private schools.   No longer are parents able to exempt their child(ren) from being fully immunized for personal or religious beliefs. If a child  had a personal belief exemption (PBE) that was  filed at a school or child-care facility before January 1, 2016 it  will remain valid until the student enrolls in transitional kindergarten, kindergarten or 7th grade.  For more information regarding Senate Bill 277 and your responsibilities as a licensed child care provider in documenting enrolled children’s immunizations visit www.shotsforschool.org

 

Agencias de pago alternativos, como CDA, se les pide por el Departamento de Educación de California (CDE) la educación temprana y la división de apoyo (EESD) de notificar a los proveedores de cuidado infantil acerca de cambios en los requisitos de inmunización infantil que tuvo lugar el 1 de enero de 2016.  El proyecto de ley del senado 277 cambió los requisitos de vacunación para los niños en cuidado infantil y escuelas públicas y privadas. Ya no son los padres capaces de exentar a sus hijos de completar su vacunación por creencias personales o religiosas.  Si un niño se presentó en una escuela o guardería con una excepción personal de creencia (PBE) antes del 1 de enero del 2016 seguirá siendo válido hasta que el estudiante se inscriba en la transición al kínder, kínder o 7 º grado.  Para obtener más información sobre el proyecto del Senado de ley 277 y sus responsabilidades como una guardería de proveedor con licencia acerca de las inmunizaciones de los niños visita www.shotsforschool.org.
