The CDA can be defined accurately as a model program. Under the leadership of a very engaged board and a visionary director this school provides exceptional enrichment to a frequently vulnerable segment of our population. These kids are receiving the best early education possible. The curriculum design is as challanging and forward reaching as it is at any fine private preschool available at any price. There is an energy and excitement about learning that is visable. Teachers and staff work together seamlessly toward the same goals. Parents are served and educated as well creating an even stronger potential for success. Remarkably this outreach is done effectively and with great respect. This program is so powerful it will change everyone touched by it; as we see human potential rescued and expanded to allow these children to have the same dreams as the children of the affluent..... and to acheive them. I have been a board member for 7 years and consider it a priviledge to serve here. The growth in quality and services over that time is so dramatic it hardly believable, and truely wonderful.

The CDA is an amazing organization. The board is extremely active and takes care with all funds that are used. The staff, under great direction, goes beyond fulfilling its mission to enable preschool children of low-income working families to make a great start.

My involvement with the Child Development Association has been the most amazing and life changing experience of my life...to date. There is an incredible energy that surrounds this organization, its community, staff and most importantly its students. The opportunity to be involved with this non profit came completely by chance and has be a pivotal force for change in my life. Knowing that my work has impacted the lives of so many wonderful children has made me realize the gift of our greater good. The Child Development Association is truly the voice of Georgia's children.

I could not be more proud to support the CDA and the good work they are doing providing the highest quality education to pre-school children in Georgia. This is an intelligently run non-profit where each dollar we give is carefully spent go to maximize the benefit for the children. You can visit the center and actually see the children's faces light up like light bulbs with the joy of learning. I encourage you to learn more about the CDA and to join us as a volunteer or a donor. Your life and the life of the children in our school will be changed for the better. Nathan Hartman

The CDA has a profound positive impact on young children and their families. Not only do the kids get a wonderful start on life, but their parents are able to continue working in order to support he family. The organization is very well run, has high standards of integrity and,most importantly, deleivers on its mission. Ed Mactas

My business centers around helping people protect and transfer assets to their loved ones. This often includes working closely with charities who are the beneficiaries. Of the charities I have worked with over the years, very few work as effectively to improve the lives of women and children like the Child Development Association. By adhering to the highest quality of education for the children of working mother's the CDA is investing in a bright future for everyone. I can't recommend more highly learning more about the good work they do.

The CDA provides working low income single women with the opportunity to support their families while providing an outstanding education for their children. The quality of the CDA education is evidenced by its NAEYC accreditation. Often the affordable alternative to CDA is a home day care situation with the result being that children are not prepared to enter kindergarten and fall behind their peers immediately then never catch up.

Over the years, I've volunteered and/or observed activities in the classroom and programs including outdoor programs (e.g. the nature trail and playground.) The teachers and staff are very engaged with the children.

THE CDA IS A VIBRANT DAYCARE PROGRAM GROWING THE MINDS AND SPIRITS OF THE CHILDREN OF FULL TIME WORKING PARENTS WHO ARE ALSO LIVING BELOW THE POVERTY LEVEL. I LOVE THIS PROGRAM BECAUSE IT MAKES THE POSSIBILITY OF A CHILD GAINING ENOUGH GROUND TO MOVE OUT OF THE LIMITED POTENTIAL OF A LOW INCOME JOB.... A REALITY. IN ONE GENERATION WITH THIS KIND OF EARLY AND DYNAMIC INTERVENTION A CHILD OF PARENTS WHO CAN BARELY READ CAN SUCCEED IN COLLEGE IN ONE GENERATION.... AND THESE KIDS ARE LESS LIKELY TO FAIL COLLEGE OR NOT.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

NOW NAYCE ACCREDITED...TEACHERS CERTIFIED AND INSURED...A PLAYGROUND BEYOND COMPARE I COULD GO ON AND ON THROUGH THE LEADERSHIP OF A DYNAMIC AND VISIONARY DIRECTOR THE PROGRAM CONTINUES TO SET UNATTAINABLE GOALS AND THEN ...MEETS THEM

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I WOULD SEE TO IT THEY HAD MORE MONEY SO THEY COULD EXPAND PROGRAMMING TO HELP MORE KIDS REACH THEIR REAL POTENTIAL

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

really feeling like i have contributed to the fantastic growth and change we have enjoyed over the past 6 years through some VERY hard work i am so grateful to have this progam be a part of my community

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very varied and very committed ...lots of different skill sets we enjoy the luxury of doing what we do well and what we enjoy because the group is active and strong

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world one child at a time

Ways to make it better...

my experience could not have been better ...i feel useful and appreciated and always like a part of the team

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting enough money....worrying about funding takes focus away from delivery of services

One thing I'd also say is that...

if anyone has any way to provide resources to this program ...DO IT the value of your gift will be multiplied many times

Its zeal to provide top quality pre-K education at the most important age in the development of children is unparalleled. The staff is well trained and totally committed to students and families. The CDAs careful attention to the funds that they have been entrusted results in better care and education of the children.

It is a proven fact that early education is a key element in the development of an individual´s potential as a valuable contributor to society. The CDA, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, is especially qualified to achieve this goal for the children of families that can´t afford quality Pre-K eduction. Investing in these children is one of the best ways to guaranty a better community for years to come. Everyday I visit the school and bring visitors to know the CDA first hand my level of commitment to the goal at hand increases.

The CDA has been a part of Roswell for the past 40 years to help families with young children. The CDA provides an excellent educational environment for preschool learning. There are many opportunities for individuals or small groups that want their volunteer efforts to produce meaningful results. Visit our web site at www.CDAKids.org or call 770.992.4339 to inquire about how you become involved with the CDA.
