Comments on Inclusive Early Childhood Programs:
As always things were wonderful. Not only do I learn more than I ever have from a class I have to leave home for, I can do this in my home! My children and husband appreciate that as well. The class I just ordered [Inclusive Early Childhood Programs] is incredible. I plan to not only apply it to my daycare, I know it will help with the Sunday school class I teach as well. Thank you for helpful information that we can apply right away. - Bel Air, Maryland
