Why use Care Courses? Because they're convenient, affordable and you learn so much!


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.”

Shawn, Arverne, New York

What Alaska students say:

"Thanks again for the rush order. I studied [Active or Hyperactive?] non-stop this weekend, except for meals and church. As of this month I have been doing day care for 17 years, and I thought I knew it all. Boy, was I surprised. Now when Monday comes I will know how to treat this one 4-year-old boy with a completely different understanding. I have learned so much from these courses. Thanks again and again." - Seward, Alaska

"I am very pleased with the courses I took [Great Days with Kids, Social Emotional Development in Young Children, Conferencing with Parents, Abuse and Neglect: a Caregiver's Guide to Child Abuse]. I must say that in my opinion, it is super convenient because right now between work and my family I barely have time to 'comb my hair'... So it is the best way to learn something new, remember stuff I learned long time ago and complete the training hours that I am required to have. Thank you very much for having this wonderful program available for people that do not have time to attend classes like me." - Fairbanks, Alaska
“Sounds like I'm going to learn a lot from this course [Active or Hyperactive?]. I have two children in my day care that, if I didn't know better, I would think you guys knew them personally! I'm very excited about this one! Thank you for your help!” - Soldotna, Alaska

I love your courses [Social-Emotional Development in Young Children, Language Development in Infants, Early Childhood Stress]! As a member of the early childhood education community, I have taught for 32 years. It is refreshing to have new information readily available, to review basic information and have it all conveyed in an organized, interesting fashion.” - Fairbanks, Alaska
