Student comments on A Joyful Life of Caregiving:
Everything was wonderful! I will absolutely use your services again when I need more training, and would recommend your services to anyone needing them. Thank you so much! – Dixon, Illinois
I am very happy with my course so far! I absolutely love the simplicity of navigating the course and my profile page to get to my courses! It allows me to focus on the material and not the technology parts of doing the course! I am even more excited that I can do these courses in my own time - it has allowed me to have the flexibility of learning while having small children at home. Finally, the support from the Care Courses School has been absolutely amazing! - Alberta, Canada
As always everything went well with my Care Courses [Joyful Life of Caregiving, Sun Safety, Observing and Recording Children’s Development, Sanitation for Disease Prevention in Early Childhood Programs]. 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, RhodeI have already completed the course, A Joyful Life of Caregiving. The course was recommended by our director to remind us to find the joy in caring for children. Even though I am a financial secretary for a preschool and get bogged down in the “business” side of caring for children, and I am not in the classroom (except to volunteer on Sundays at church), it was a much needed reminder of some strategies to be the best I can be for the kids and parents, because they deserve it! I really enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it. Thank you for offering it. - Alabaster, Alabama
The course was interesting and relevant to the work I do. The site was easy to use and I will be taking more Care Courses. Thank you for following up! - Bosie, Idaho
