Through a unique collaboration between Charter Oak State College, Connecticut Charts-A-Course, the Department of Social Services, and the Hartford Area Child Care Collaborative, a conceptual framework for a Connecticut Director's Credential has been developed. The Connecticut Director's Credential (CDC) seeks to provide individuals a voluntary system of credentialing with three levels of proficiency issued through Charter Oak State College.
The Director's Credential will be awarded to those who have successfully met all the requirements necessary to obtain the credential at each level. The Credential will acknowledge that as a professional working in the field of early care and education, you have obtained knowledge and competencies in the Connecticut Core Areas of Knowledge for Directors.
