Research repeatedly confirms that investing in early childhood education for all children especially disadvantaged children – can prevent an achievement gap later by providing children with the early knowledge and skills they need to do well in school.
National statistics show that 64 percent of all children younger than age 6 have all parents in the workforce, suggesting that approximately 500,000 Georgia children from birth to age 5 need care while parents work.
The Child Development Association (CDA) provides affordable early learning programs and childcare for preschool children of low-income families in the metro Atlanta area.
The CDA prepares economically disadvantaged children for success in education and life. And, our childcare services enable hardworking parents to maintain full-time employment to support their families.
