What Massachusetts students say:
"My staff and myself love the convenience of Care Courses [Making Learning Fun, Discipline in Child Care, The Art of Child Care and Understanding Children] and we have learned a lot from each course we have taken. As a school setting for the after school students, we are required to get 20 hours of Professional Development. The staff and myself have enjoyed every course we have taken through your company and we will re order in the future." - Brockton, Massachusetts
"I received my care courses with no problems at all. I am currently working on one of them now [Mixed Age Groups in Child Care] The information is wonderful and very helpful. I look forward to completing more Care Courses in the future." - Quincy, Massachusetts
"I'm thrilled with the courses [Day by Day with Toddlers]. I've been a provider for 35 years and everything I read is right on to what I've done all these years. I also love all the new ideas I'm getting as well. Thank you for this wonderful program." - Holliston, Massachusetts
"I have only good words for the courses and the people behind the email link. 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 preschool teachers. Even when I had a problem and contacted you, you responded immediately and helped me resolve my issue. I'm doing another course [Language Development in Infants] now and will continue gaining knowledge and credits through your courses. Thank you so much." - Framingham, Massachusetts
"I just wanted your company to know that your courses are so convenient. I am taking a 10 hour class [ADHD] and would have to go out about 5 times to two hour seminars which may or may not be offered near my home. Also, letting us have the option of online or a book really helps us "older" students. I am not tied to the computer. I have completed the first half of the ADHD class at my leisure. I plan to finish the rest over my Christmas break."
- Plymouth, Massachusetts
"Thank you for the follow-up. I have received my Care Courses. I have completed one [Social-Emotional Development in Young Children], mailed in the quiz and am now working on the second course. I am impressed with your product. It allows me to get required training at my own pace. I will definitely use your products in the future."
- Attleboro, Massachusetts
