What South Carolina Students say:
"I greatly appreciate Care Courses [Early Childhood Stress: Serious Stress in Children's Lives, Creating Schedules and Routines, Sanitation for Disease Prevention, ADHD, Stress and Day Care, and Infants in Child Care]. The subjects you offer are very diverse. I need that. My county does not offer a wide selection of classes. Most of the classes are repeats from the year before. Plus most of the information they teach in the classes I have had in college. So once again it's just a repeat of what I have had in past years. I very seldom learn any thing new. But, with your courses I learn all kinds of new and interesting information. Your courses take a different, more in-depth approach into child care. I like that a lot. Once again thank you for having your courses available to us." - Swansea, South Carolina
