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 Ohio students say: 

 
Making Learning Fun Cover "My order was here within 3 days!!!! I have started on this latest course [Making Learning Fun] but not yet finished. I got my CDA Renewal finished on time because of your courses, and haven't looked back since. I especially like that I can finish in my own time and don't have to juggle time for family and work and school. I love having the books to look back through for ideas to do with the children in my classroom. Thanks for all the ideas." - Pataskala, Ohio
