What Alabama students say:
Alabama Childcare Class "Your courses help me to remember and utilize the basics but they also help put things in perspective. This course in particular [Creating Schedules and Routines] has been good because I am a little bit on the disorganized side. The sample schedules are going to help me create a great schedule." - Opelika, Alabama
