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 decided to go into child care and my director recommended me to take the CDA course. I think it is great."

What Kansas students say:
"I thoroughly enjoyed my first course, "Toddlers in Child Care." I have worked mostly with toddlers in childcare centers, but I learned so much in your course. I signed up for my second course, "Managing Health and Safety in Child Care" and just completed it last night! I am currently working at a Child Welfare organization and your section on abused and neglected children was right on track. I especially loved the section on supporting the parents when the children do remain in the home. This is usually the best option for children and these parents need as much support as possible. Thank you so much for making this type of format available. Care Courses has worked wonderfully with my full-time work schedule."

"I loved downloading the course as it gave me time to read in my spare time. I could pick a time when it was quiet, and I have the course on hand when I want to go back and reread it if I want. Thank you for offering these [Early Childhood Professional, Preschoolers in Child Care, and Mixed Age Groups] online."
