What Colorado Students say:
“Thank you so much for your follow up with me. I did receive my course book [Day by Day with Toddlers: Curriculum Planning] and have started to read it. I love your curriculum!

"The courses were fabulous and so convenient! I was able to get all of my required credit hours plus more over the course of a weekend at home. Thank you so much for offering such a wide variety [Friendly Environments, Safe Environments, Social-Emotional Development in Young Children, and Partnerships with Parents] of courses. Thanks!"
- Windsor, CO
"I love all the Care Courses I have taken. I am in the process of taking three [Toilet Learning, Transitions and Other Troublesome Times, and Mixed-Age Groups] of your courses and find them extremely helpful. Also I have shared some of the suggestions regarding potty training with one of my families. Their little one although 3 years old has had no interest in potty training and they were a bit worried when they were seeing no results at all. I wanted to be a support to them but felt he was not ready for toilet training yet and did not want the little one to get frustrated. After reading some of the information I suggested, they realized that he is just not ready for toilet training at this time. They have decided to be patient and wait a couple of months before trying again. WHEW!! Thank you for some great info." - Westminster, CO
"This course [Abuse and Neglect] was so interesting. I truly enjoyed it. Thank you for being there for us. Looking forward to the next one." - Colorado Springs, CO
