 About Us

The CDA® is the most widely recognized credential in early childhood education, with over 46 years of history and more than 800,000 teachers certified globally. Although well-established in the U.S., many countries around the world still lack a proper training system, such as the CDA®. ChildWise’s training products seek to fill demand for certification, both in the U.S. and China. Among the 25 languages offered by the CDA® training organizations, ChildWise is the first and only education company that provides CDA® online training in both Chinese and English.  The course has students across North America, Asia, and Europe, and ChildWise recently partnered with the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania to offer it as a credit course in their Penn Literacy Network


However, the Chinese market is where ChildWise is seeing explosive growth. The U.S. educational system is well-respected and sought after in China, and consequently the demand for CDA®-certified teachers in China has grown tremendously. In 2017, ChildWise was authorized as the exclusive partner to launch a CDA® training pilot program in China. After the success completion of the pilot program in 2018, ChildWise became the only official training partner of the CDA® Council to provide training in Greater China.
