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 graduated with a degree in forensic psychology but decided to go into child care and my director recommended me to take the CDA course. I think it is great. Thank you.”

What Rhode Island Students say:

"Excellent course! I found it [Great Days with Kids] very informative. It's refreshing to know that I can meet my training requirements during my regular 50 hour work week and not have to take an entire evening or Saturday to attend outside training. I will absolutely be a repeat customer and will recommend Care Courses to others!" - Ashaway, Rhode Island
"As always everything went well with my Care Courses [A Joyful Life of Caregiving, Sun Safety, Observing, Recording and Assessing Children's Development, and Sanitation for Disease Prevention]. I will be renewing my CDA and Care Courses is helping me obtain the CEU's I need to complete this task. I will be ordering another Care Course soon." - North Providence, Rhode Island
"I am so happy with these courses. They are very informative. I have been a licensed daycare provider for five years. I am currently going to my local college for my associates in early childhood development. The courses I have taken from you are Child Care Administration and The Art of Child Care. They have a lot of information in them. I will soon open my own center and be the Director. Your courses are wonderful. Thank you." - Johnston, Rhode Island
"Everything went well with my courses [Social Emotional Development in Young Children and Partnerships with Parents]. It took about a week to finish up the credit time that I needed for my annual hours at work. It was nice to log on and off as time permitted. I will use Care Courses again for the upcoming year. Thank you."  - Warwick, Rhode Island
