i would like to find out if it is legal for CPS to tape and interview your child without the parents knowledge and not being there.

Yes unless the child has an attorney already representing him.
CPS does this sort of visit all the time. They usually go to the child's school. You learn about it when the children get home from school.
If CPS has opened an investigation, I strongly urge you to hire an attorney. You need someone to assist you in dealing with the complicated legal issues involved. I would not sign anything until an attorney reviews it.
Best of luck to you!
