CCEI's ECC is accepted as a CDA in Wisconsin!!
The Wisconsin Professional Early Childhood Registry and the Bureau of Early Care Regulation have evaluated the CCEI Early Childhood Credential (ECC) and determined that it is an accepted certification equivalent to the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential issued by the Council for Professional Recognition. Therefore, practitioners who hold the CCEI Online Early Childhood Credential (ECC) meet the education components required for directors of small centers and child care teachers in early childhood settings in the state of Wisconsin. The Credential is also recognized by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) to meet part of the Alternative Pathways for directors working to qualify as Designated Program Administrator and holders of the Credential can be considered qualified for Head Start positions that require a minimum of a CDA or other certificate.
