Celebrating Our Founder

Last week, we celebrated CDA’s founder- Charlene Tressler and 48 years creating positive change!

Charlene Tressler Day was officially commemorated on June 1, 2006, by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. Charlene was passionate about the well-being of young children and worked tirelessly to improve the quality and professionalism of the Early Childhood field. She embodied CDA’s mission to encourage and support the success and well-being of children, families, and the child care community.

I want to help make the world a better place…” – Charlene
