What Florida Students say:
"I wanted to thank you for this course [Transitions and Other Troublesome Times]. It is a great course and I would recommend it to everyone who works with children. I am using the ideas in the book in my class. It has made a big difference. I understand a lot more now about kids and their feelings and how to help them." - Gainesville, Florida
"Everything went well with the book courses. I really like the convenience of ordering the books and taking my time to read and answer the test questions. I can take the book to work, to the gym, anywhere. The turn-around time for my certificates was awesome. I will encourage anyone to take Care Courses."
- Plant City, Florida
"The course I took, Toddlers in Child Care, was very thorough. The fourth section really was stuffed with information - I know I'll be referring to it time and again. I was highly impressed with the information presented, both the quantity and the quality. Some of the suggestions in the course, such as having some sort of steps for toddlers to practice on and assigning tasks for the kids to be able to participate at mealtime, are already being implemented into my program. I ordered the PDF version of the class but found that I had to print it out anyway. I wanted to add notes and printing it also made it easier to read. In the future I'd probably just go ahead and order the printed version. Not a criticism at all, just a suggestion for future students. Also, the turnaround time getting the test results was really quick. I faxed in my answers and did not pay extra to get the results quickly, and still they arrived in no time at all. Thank you for a high quality experience!" - Ft. Myers, Florida
The courses [Preventing Child Abuse and Helping Its Victims, Witnesses to Violence, Early Childhood Stress, Creating Schedules and Routines, and Conferencing with Parents] are fantastic and the speedy grading is terrific. I love your courses and I will continue taking them. I need these courses for my National CDA and I have referred several other candidates to Care Courses. Thank you again for your courses and the speedy grading return. Outstanding work and please keep it up." – Tallahassee, Florida
