So far the course is wonderful and informative. A great idea for someone who is currently working full time as a teacher and I love doing it on my very spare free time lol. Can’t wait to get more courses soon!!! - Eau Claire,Wisconsin
I really, really love your courses and books. It's fun, interesting and have great values for teachers and anyone who works with children. I have been using your courses for about three years and I love the knowledge and the freedom to study and take the exam at my own pace. - Sherman Oaks, California
I have been in child care for many years and I find some online courses are repetitious. I enjoy Care Courses very much. They are up-to-date with child care knowledge and current situations that children are dealing with today. Thanks for helping me fulfill my continuing education obligations. - Bellows Falls, Vermont
What can I say, I loved everything about this course. Every person who has a child or works with children should take this course. As a home daycare provider and a mother of 4 1/2-year-old and a 3-year-old, the information I learned is invaluable. The way the course was set up with learning objectives, self checks and lesson quizzes for each lesson, was extremely helpful. I truly enjoyed taking this course and look forward to taking my next course. Thank you. - Verona, New Jersey
I received my order on the 3rd and am very pleased with prompt delivery and the course content (all three courses). I have been an Early Head Start (prenatal to three) home visitor for 8 and 1/2 years and my first experience with Care Courses was three years ago when I needed CEUs to renew my CDA and the self-paced courses worked well for me. Each program year we are required to complete 40 hours of training and although several of the hours will be completed through agency trainings I wanted some training in areas that are directly related to areas of concern with my current caseload. The three courses that I am now taking do that. Thank you. - Norway, Maine
Received the course just fine. As usual, I am enjoying this course. Almost done! It is full of useful information and some new activities to do with "my" preschoolers. On a personal note, I am a grandparent to a just over 2 year old and a 3 month old, so your course is a good refresher on a much younger note also. - Ocean Springs, Mississippi
