What Louisiana students say:

"I am so happy with your courses [Infant/Toddler CDA]. I am an Assistant Director in a Child Development Center in Louisiana and since we want to be part of the Stars Quality System it was necessary that I have a CDA. Even when I have a master's degree they needed this class. Your material is so complete, but at the same time pretty easy to understand that I am encouraging my staff to take it with you. I love the examples you provide! I really like that you give the web sites or information about music, books, and all kinds of material. I even make copies about the common diseases among children and keep it at the center. It is a clear and good way to have the information at hand. Also the check points about the development stages of toddlers or PK gives a clearer idea of what we need to provide for them so they can acquire all what they need in the correct time. So congratulations for your material, it is awesome and it is great the job you do to improve the quality of the services in the Day Cares or Child Development Centers!!!"
