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

Care Courses offers online training classes and book courses for child care providers, home visitors and parents. Use our childcare professional development clock hours for most US States continuing education inservice requirements and registries, for CDA Certification (Child Development Associate Credential), for CDA Renewal and for NAC Renewal. All our professional development courses give both Clock Hours and CEUs toward CDA Renewal. 

Our informative child care training programs can be completed anywhere and at any time. Study at home, at the park, or wherever is most convenient for you. Then go online to complete and submit your quiz. Our friendly, knowledgeable instructors offer unlimited free student support by phone or email, and are always happy to help!

Early childhood child care training can be fun, interesting, and relevant to your daily work and experience! We've been offering professional development classes for over 20 years; we love what we do and truly want to make your experience fantastic.

Missouri Childcare Training Requirements: All online Care Courses (with the exception of Keeping Infants Safe) are approved through the Missouri Workshop Calendar and may be used towards the 12 clock hours of child-care related training required annually for those who work in child care centers, group day care homes, family day care homes and license exempt child care facilities. This includes center directors, child care providers, caregivers, assistant caregivers and volunteers. For Registry training credit, please click here.

Please note: Only online format courses may be used to meet your annual training requirements. Courses in our Coursebook format may not be used by Missouri caregivers to meet annual training requirements.

Our course Safe Baby, Safe Child may be used towards annual training but does not meet the Missouri requirement for safe sleep training.

What Missouri students say:
"Everything went well with the course [Creating Schedules and Routines.] I love taking Care Courses, because they are so convenient with my schedule."
- St. Louis, Missouri
"This program [Witnesses to Violence] was read immediately by all of our staff and we found it most helpful to understand what behaviors to watch for and how to discuss the children's feelings with them as they are able to express them. We have shared some of the articles with the family involved and several other parents. We realize it will be a long process to heal but feel your program has already helped us." - West Yellowstone, Missouri
