Comments on Child Care Administration:
I enjoyed this whole course. The book was very informative. Thank you. - Johnston, Rhode Island
I am so happy with these courses. They are very informative. I have been a licensed daycare provider for five years. I am currently going to my local college for my associates in early childhood development. The course I have taken from you are Child Care Administration. They have a lot of information in them. I will soon open my own center and be the Director. Your courses are wonderful. Thank you. - Johnston, Rhode Island
Just wanted to let you know that I am extremely pleased with my experience with your organization from the first call I made to clarify the registration process to this final email. It was a very smooth process to complete the licensing requirement for a Child Care Administration class. I really like how you set the course up online. It took me three days to complete with breaks in between and the system was very easy to navigate. I especially liked the self-checks along the way and the opportunity to go back to check answers before submitting them on the tests. I will definitely use your organization again. Thank you. - Westland, Michigan
