Being able to educate myself (not only to meet requirements but to truly enhance my development) is essential to maintaining the quality service I hope to provide.

"Dear Care Courses Family, I just wanted to let you know how great it was to be able to do this course [Stress and Day Care] at my own pace. I really enjoyed it. Day Care has such long hours, even after the day is over, there is always things to do to get ready for the next day, that it was nice to be able to ready this book in my own time.

I work a part time job after I close my daycare and this makes it nearly impossible to learn or to accumulate required credits. I have recommended Care Courses to many people including my clients that are special needs pre school teachers.

Thank you so much." - Framingham, Massachusetts Language Development in Infants

"Everything went very smoothly. In fact the books arrived much sooner than expected. I didn't believe I was going to actually 'learn' anything, but I am pleased to report that there was a lot of valuable information contained in the course. I found myself highlighting, writing notes and adding pages to my files for further review. Thank you for a well written and interesting course." - Hanover, Maryland First Steps in Child Care: An Orientation

"The children and I want to thank you for such a wonderful learning experience in this lesson that I ordered from you [Discipline in Child Care]. I have been doing in-home family day care for 26 years now and have used positive techniques talked about in this lesson. however I have renewed some things that I had forgotten over the years. The children I have are well behaved...you might say I understand their capabilities for each of their ages. At this time I have 2 boys that are 2 years old, 1 boy that is 16 months, 2 girls that are 13 months, and  1 12 month old.  each one has different life styles at home.  Either single parents, married but divorced, parents that have structure and security at home and some that have no security. Each child shows the life style and needs in a different way. We have to stay on our toes around here and know some of why the child acts in different ways. My mother in law lives with me and is also reading the literature you sent to me as she is sometimes watching the children wile I run after my own 10 year old at school. I have raised 4 children of my own. Reading this lesson has helped me to realize why my own children acted in certain ways over the past 25 years. Thank you so much for this lesson. I will be telling everyone in my Child Care Providers Association here in Irving, Texas about your classes. I loved being able to work in this in my own spare time. (which I don't have much of around here) I will be using your services in the future." - Irving, Texas Discipline in Child Care
Active or Hyperactive? "This course [Active or Hyperactive?] defined my daughter to a tee! She has always been so difficult to handle and my mom calls her 'spoiled.' It was so good to read this course and keep saying, 'Yes, that is my kid!' Thank you for offering such a wonderfully helpful course." - Dallas, Texas
"I would recommend you guys to anyone. The course [Managing Health and Safety in Child Care] was easy to understand as well as the quiz. I also received my certificates sooner than I expected. Thanks so much!!" - Glenwood, Illinois Managing Health and Safety in Child Care
Cultural Diversity in Early Childhood Programs "I am very happy with my Care Course experience [Cultural Diversity in Early Childhood Programs]. I just had a baby a month ago and was approaching my deadline to get my pdps. Care Courses was a convenient way for me to catch up while being home with my new baby. I will certainly be using your services again." - Natick, Massachusetts
"Just want to let you know that Care Courses [Child Development and Guidance, Toddlers in Child Care, Principles of Child Development and Learning and Infants in Child Care] is great!!! I get my books mailed to me in a timely manner and the instructions are very thorough and easy to understand!! You guys are the best!" - Middlesex, New Jersey Toddlers in Child Care
Discipline in Child Care "Discipline in Child Care is SUPER! SUPER! It is very well organized, and the articles are excellent. Caregiver Attitudes and Language offers much important information for communication with children. Topics on Patience or Understanding and Responsive or Restrictive Language were very enlightening to me. I have become more aware of what I say. I feel that I am making my children's environment more positive. I am also better able to handle problems with more understanding, confidence and with much less stress." - Minot, Maine
