What Oregon students say:
"Hello! I LOVED the Care Course [Children's Challenging Behaviors] I took. Loved that it was all in my own time. I learned so much and everything about the course was very clear. Thank you! I am looking forward to another course in the future!" - Rogue River, Oregon
“Thanks for being there for us. As certified Oregon child care providers we are required to complete 15 hours of training each year. Of those 15 hours, 8 must be in the area of human growth and development. It is not always easy to find those 8 hours of trainings in our local area. It is so nice to have Care Courses to turn to for help. Providing the list of approved Oregon Core Knowledge Categories, with the breakdown of hours is a tremendous help when selecting courses. We love the information the courses provide, and the convenient testing and certificate processes. Thanks again.” - Tigard, Oregon
"I so appreciate Care Courses. Your customer support is great and I feel that the information your classes [Discipline in Child Care] give is spot on. What a great resource for early childhood educators!" – Portland, Oregon
"Very helpful [Great Days with Kids: Curriculum and Lesson Planning] in determining what program to work for and how to design lessons! Thanks!" - Bend, Oregon
"Thank you. Everything went very well... smoothly and quickly. The Care Courses are the only way to go. After years of taking training hours the old fashion way... I'll never take training any other way. I hope you continue to add new courses." -- Salem, Oregon
"Thank you! The courses [Child Development through Play, Preschoolers in Child Care, and Children with Special Needs: Physical Disabilities] came in much sooner then I expected. Which was a blessing and the staff talked about how much they learned from each lesson they studied."
