Care Courses Reviews

"Everything is great. I love Care Courses. Almost done with my 45 hours [Toddlers in Child Care, Infants in Child Care, and Safe Baby, Safe Child] and will continue to use Care Courses. I even referred some providers that didn't know about it. Thank You!" - Baltimore, Maryland Toddlers in Child Care
Social-Emotional Development in Young Children "I love taking the Care Courses [Social-Emotional Development in Young Children and Biting Hurts!]. They are educational, interesting and very user friendly. I look forward to taking more of them!" - Las Vegas, Nevada
"We have taken advantage of Care Courses for training for several years. The courses [Friendly Environments, Safe Environments and Early Childhood Stress] are easy to access (we've started using the online ones now) and convenient for working teachers needing annual training hours. There is a wide range of topics and the material is current and can be used immediately with children and families. I have been working in child care for 40 years and always learn or re-learn something new from the courses. I like the variety of hours earned from each course. So many workshops or trainings only award 2 or 3 hours of training when we need 24 annually. Staff can take a class on just the amount of time they need." - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Friendly Environments, Safe Environments
Stress and Day Care "I just have to tell you that I found your courses [Stress and Day Care] absolutely great! They are just what I needed! It is nice that I can do them at my own pace and they are very informative! Being a child care provider, my time is very busy and being able to log in and do them as I can is exactly what I needed!!" - Centerville, Iowa
"Yes, I have received my courses and finished Biting Hurts and will be sending the quiz to you this week. I am now working on the other course, Children's Challenging Behaviors. I really like the Care Courses, they allow me to fit them into my busy schedule without having to run to class or worry about being late and missing the class altogether. Thanks, Care Courses!" - Upper Marlboro, Maryland Biting Hurts!
Child Development and Guidance "I love the Care Courses [Child Development and Guidance] and the ease of being able to take them when time permits. I find them to be very informative and use the advice garnered from them often. After 46 yrs. in this business I thought I knew everything BUT you proved me wrong. Thanks for all you do to educate the public on ways to improve our time spent with children." - Longmont, Colorado
"I enjoyed my Care Courses [Children's Challenging Behaviors and Day by Day With Toddlers] as usual! I have used Care Courses for quite a few years and always find them to be well written and interesting. That makes a huge difference in being able to stay engaged and see them through! I live in a rural location so being able to complete good, relevant training right from home is a wonderful option. I will be back for more! Thank you!" - Erskine, Minnesota Children's Challenging Behaviors
Observing, Recording, and Assessing Children's Development "The two recent Care Courses I purchased and completed (online) [Observing, Recording, and Assessing Children's Development and Creating Schedules and Routines] were fantastic. Exceeded my expectations; reasonably priced and $$ well spent. Thank you!" - Worcester, Massachusetts
"Everything went great! I will continue to use Care Courses [Active or Hyperactive?] & recommend people to Care Courses at all times. I have completed the online survey. I must say customer service was remarkably outstanding and course was outlined really well! Thanks to Care Courses & their staff for doing a fantastic job." - Laurel, Maryland Active or Hyperactive?
Transportation Safety "I absolutely love the Care Courses!!!!!! Very informative and being able to complete the courses [Transportation Safety] online is wonderful." - Missouri City, Texas
"I just completed Mixed-Age Groups in Early Childhood Programs and I was struck by the user-friendly structure of the course. The writers of the courses seem to take a student-first approach rather than an ego-driven hard-to-follow approach. The structure of the course guarantees success. Thanks for the well thought out course for a busy child care giver who doesn't have time to wade through a bunch of gobbeldy-gook." - Glen Burnie, Maryland Mixed-Age Groups in Early Childhood Programs
Child Development and Guidance "I was extremely impressed with the course [Child Development and Guidance] and speed of the certificate! I will definitely be using your online courses in the future! Useful information available to me when it works with my schedule. Thank you!" - Walworth, New York
"Thank you for the ability to activate a course at a later date. I ordered Mixed-Age Groups, then had a family crisis followed by illness which shelved the course. A year plus later, I was able to complete the study. I do appreciate the flexibility available through your courses." - Littleton, Colorado Mixed-Age Groups
Preschoolers in Child Care "Thank you very much for your kind assistance and support during my time of studies [Preschoolers in Child Care] with shipments, promptly responding to my calls, questions and mailing my certificates and transcripts. Your support was greatly appreciated and encouraging. I do look forward in continuing to further my studies in the teaching field of education for children." - Lakeland, Florida
"The material [The Early Childhood Professional] is very relevant and informative. It is also written in a way that is illuminating and not tedious. We chose a career that demands dedicated, loving individuals who understand the importance of building the ideal foundation which infants and young children need in order to grow up to become self assured, intelligent and well adjusted young people and adults on all levels." - Brecksville, Ohio The Early Childhood Professional
Transitions and Other Troublesome Times] "Hello, I just love your courses. I enjoy the fact that I can take your courses on my time, save my place and test online. Thank you for being so prompt in sending my certificates too. Looking forward to seeing new courses. I have a dual license, I am a Foster care parent as well as Child Care Provider and have passed on your course book to them. It might be a good idea to include some classes in regards to fostering children. BTW the transitioning course [Transitions and Other Troublesome Times] was great!" - Delta, Colorado
"Heard about your online courses from our State Licensing Department. I was going to go back to college to add 2 courses more in education in order to file for my director's license. She told me to take your courses [Language Development in Infants] instead! Loved the information, the testing set up and shared information! Loved the fact I could print it out to refer back to it later down the line too! And I am very proud of my test scores!" - Orange, Texas Language Development in Infants
Biting Hurts! "Yes! I have finished the courses and they were both [Biting Hurts! and Mixed-Age Groups] excellent. I refreshed ideas to keep doing great things with my little ones. I love what I do!!" - Plymouth, Massachusetts
