What Care Courses' Michigan students say:
"This is the second class [Understanding Each Other: Families, Staff and Community] that I have taken through your program. It was excellent, just like the first one [ADHD]. I have already applied some of the knowledge that I have learned through the courses. Keep up the good work with creating these classes!" - Ypsilanti, Michigan
"I really enjoyed this course [The Magic of Play]...and will definitely contact you again for future courses...this was very interesting and very informative." - Otsego, Michigan
"I greatly appreciate the service you provide in these courses. I never would have had the time to complete the 120 required clock hours for the CDA if it has not been for your courses. Thank you for your time and for this much needed service." - St. Johns, Michigan
"I really enjoyed the Care Courses [Children's Challenging Behaviors, Transitions and Other Troublesome Times, and Nurturing Children's Self-Esteem]. Circumstances had changed for me and I was suddenly in a pinch to finish my training hours for my CDA renewal. I was able to hit the books when my kids went to school. Being able to pick books that I felt would benefit me the most was a plus.  The books were packed full of interesting information that I have been able to put into practice already. Thank you so much and I will be using Care Courses in the future." - Zeeland, Michigan
"I love Care Courses! Easy to navigate and the information is terrific and format is perfect. Always feel I cone away with new and accurate information. The testing is well thought out and reflects important information, not incidental facts. So glad I found your program. I like the instant results and certificates always come quickly." - Berkley, Michigan
"Just wanted to let you know that I am extremely pleased with my experience with your organization from the first call I made to clarify the registration process to this final email. It was a very smooth process to complete the licensing requirement for a Child Care Administration class. I really like how you set the course up online. It took me three days to complete with breaks in between and the system was very easy to navigate. I especially liked the self-checks along the way and the opportunity to go back to check answers before submitting them on the tests. I will definitely use your organization again. Thank you."
- Westland, Michigan
