Shawn"I am having a ball doing these courses. So much of it is very interesting and also touches a lot on what I learned in college. I graduated with a degree in forensic psychology but decided to go into child care and my director recommended me to take the CDA course. I think it is great. Thank you.”

What Pennsylvania students say:
"Not being physically in the classroom made it difficult to find courses to renew my teaching certification, so I truly appreciate Care Courses for offering Act 48 viable hours. I will definitely take more courses with your company in the future. Thanks once again!" - Honesdale, PA
"This course [Discipline in Child Carewas so interesting and informative that I couldn't put the book down. I was reading it well into the night hours. The book was well written with concrete information that is so valuable for all teachers. I have implemented many of the ideas from the book and have been reminded of beliefs I hold so dear to my heart when it comes to children. Thank you so much for a wonderful course."

It is such a relief to have found a place where I can simply spend professional development hours learning about topics that will increase my knowledge of education.
