Comments on Making Learning Fun:
I received my course just a day or so after ordering it, thank you for getting it out to me so quickly. I have finished the first lesson and enjoy the freedom of studying when I can fit it into my already busy day. I am looking forward to implementing the ideas from the course into my classroom, to ensure my children are having fun while learning. - Finksburg, Maryland
I have appreciated Care Courses for years as resources for CEUs and CDA requirements. The courses are informative, easy to understand and I like being able to work at my own pace. And keeping coursebooks that I have successfully completed are a great resource to review from time to time. Thank you. - St. Paul, Minnesota
Thanks for the care during the course!! I am well on my way to a renewal CDA. Thanks to the staff for the wonderful courses. I really enjoyed the books and the reading. Thanks again - Albuquerque, New Mexico
Everything is going wonderful so far! I am scheduled to complete 140 hours before this summer and have already submitted 100 to you, received 20 back graded, and still waiting on the remaining 80 in the mail. The coursework was very insightful, fun to learn, and an easy read! There were so many issues touched on that increased my knowledge of certain childcare issues even further, overall very good quality work you provide! - Woodville, Texas
First, I want to thank you all for coming out with these wonderful courses. After working 10 or 11 hours a day, I find myself so tired that the last thing I want to do is attend evening courses. These courses have allowed me to get the hours that I need. In the past, I have enjoyed many of your courses and none have been so interesting as this one. I have to say that this course was a real challenge for me. It must be my age, ha, ha, I will be 68 years old and near my retirement. However, it has been 25 years of pure enjoyment. I think the kids have kept me alive. For our project that we did hands on, we planted beans -- one day we were having bean tacos and the children wanted to know where beans come from and I decided that this would be a good idea for our project since it would be easy but a little messy and fun for the little ones to do. We spread out newspapers and sat on the floor. Each one had their own paper cup and a little dirt and a few beans. I did the first one and they followed. In about a week they could see their plant growing and were very happy. Thank You. - Irving, Texas
The first course I am working on, "Making Learning Fun," is incredible. I am impressed with the material; it is new information, interesting, and is info I'll share with my co-workers at our preschool. The idea of projects in the classroom sounds wonderful! - Pflugerville, Texas
