"I received my order and was very surprised at how fast I received it. I just completed reading the book and getting my thoughts together for the test. I found the book [After-School Programs] to be very informative as I am in charge of our After School program and our Summer Camp program. I got some great ideas on some of the changes that we could implement into our program. I enjoy being able to get my training at home and enjoyed taking my book outside during the nice evenings and reading!!!! I look forward to the other courses that I plan on taking in the future." - Colonial Heights, Virginia
"All went well receiving my course order [Child Development and Guidance], as always. Thank you for having these courses available. The courses are always very informative & refreshing. It is also so nice to be able to go at your own pace in the comfort of your home. I was very happy to find the courses a few years back and will for sure be using them for years to come. Thanks again. :)" – Henrico, Virginia
"I just completed the course on the eight intelligences, 'Many Ways to Learn,' and even though I had received teaching on this before, I still found your course to be informative and I learned new information. I love the convenience of being able to complete my required hours of training hours by taking Care Courses and fitting them into my schedule. Thanks!"
- McGaheysville, Virginia
"I am an experienced teacher, administrator and mentor. I recently left Fairfax County Public Schools to live in the Shenandoah Valley area. I now work at a very nice preschool, and as a result was introduced to Care Courses. As I am sure you are aware, I had to take many classes to remain certified for the state and county, while at FCPS. I am so pleased with my Care Course experience. It is professional, informative and easy to manage. I took the Discipline in Child Care course. It refreshed a lot of what I already knew, but introduced some new language that I feel confident in sharing with other teachers and parents. I look forward to taking more Care Courses in the future. Your organization provides education to teachers and childcare professionals in a very meaningful way." - Broadway, Virginia
