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."

New Mexico childcare classes "Everything went wonderfully as it did last year also [Creating Schedules and Routines].
