Hi Tonya,

Based on what you described, it sounds like you have to start with a new portfolio and new scholarship application. I cannot help you with those processes but if you google "CDA Help" you will find many companies (most charge a fee) that can help you with the steps required to achieve a CDA.

I can help with the following categories: infant-toddler care,curriculum for two through five year olds, Child Development Associate (CDA), teacher-parent concerns, classroom projects and ideas, developmental questions, lesson planning, developmentally appropriate practice, child care director questions. I can give information based on my experiences, opinions, and education although I cannot answer questions that require psycholgical or developmental diagnosis.


I have worked in the field of early childhood education for twenty years. I previously taught preschool and kindergarten. I am currently an administrator for a center. I also conduct and attend parent and teacher workshops on various topics related to early childhood.
