Celebrating Charlene Tressler Day

Today, we celebrate CDA’s founder, Charlene Tressler, and 50 years of 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

THANK YOU to our community partners, donors, and volunteers for your unconditional dedication to our programs and mission. We couldn’t do this important work without your support.
