What Care Courses' Michigan students say:
"This is the second class [Understanding Each Other: Families, Staff and Community] that I have taken through your program. It was excellent, just like the first one [ADHD]. I have already applied some of the knowledge that I have learned through the courses. Keep up the good work with creating these classes!" - Ypsilanti, Michigan
"I really enjoyed this course [The Magic of Play]...and will definitely contact you again for future courses...this was very interesting and very informative." - Otsego, Michigan
"I greatly appreciate the service you provide in these courses. I never would have had the time to complete the 120 required clock hours for the CDA if it has not been for your courses. Thank you for your time and for this much needed service." - St. Johns, Michigan
"I really enjoyed the Care Courses [Children's Challenging Behaviors, Transitions and Other Troublesome Times, and Nurturing Children's Self-Esteem]. Circumstances had changed for me and I was suddenly in a pinch to finish my training hours for my CDA renewal. I was able to hit the books when my kids went to school. Being able to pick books that I felt would benefit me the most was a plus.  The books were packed full of interesting information that I have been able to put into practice already. Thank you so much and I will be using Care Courses in the future." - Zeeland, Michigan
