What students say about First Steps in Child Care:

"Thank you so much. Everything has arrived and we love the course [First Steps in Child Care]. I have looked over the courses that you offer and we will be ordering more courses. We loved the fact that we could do it at our own pace and were able to do them during the daycare children's down time (napping) in the afternoon and not have to take time out from our families during the evenings or weekends. Thank you again." - Skowhegan, Maine
