CDS PD Funding

On April 1, 2020, Children’s Services dissolved the accreditation program and removed the facilitation of the CDS funding grant from AECEA. From that, a new process to obtain wage top-up funding and professional development funding will be implemented. The updated funding guide can be found at https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/bd3052eb-659c-4779-adae-0c4e667bdcd0/resource/bdf72375-56d3-4704-a9b6-479272643049/download/cs-child-care-grant-funding-guide-2020.pdf. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the updated government website and PD application process has not been completed yet. Once further information is available, AECEA will ensure instructions are available on the website.
