Student Comments on Toilet Learning:
"I want to commend you on the excellent content of your classes. Really, these are the best online trainings I have encountered to date. Toilet Learning hit the nail on the head. THANK YOU for the ideas that inspired positive changes for the students in my care." - Waterloo, Iowa
"All went well with my training course; Toilet Learning. It was very informative and I love the concept of toilet learning as opposed to "toilet training". I shared some of the information with a parent concerning saving the cost of pull ups over regular disposable diapers. Her son really does not have the desire to use the potty nor does he have the ability to control his bladder or bowel movements. He is big for his age and she still prefers his wearing pull ups. So I am ok with her choice, but I have changed my focus on his toilet learning while in my care. Thanks for a great course." - Owings Mill, Maryland
"I love all the Care Courses I have taken. I am in the process of taking three of your courses and find them extremely helpful. Also I have shared some of the suggestions regarding potty training with one of my families. Their little one although 3 years old has had no interest in potty training and they were a bit worried when they were seeing no results at all. I wanted to be a support to them but felt he was not ready for toilet training yet and did not want the little one to get frustrated. After reading some of the information I suggested, they realized that he is just not ready for toilet training at this time. They have decided to be patient and wait a couple of months before trying again. WHEW!! Thank you for some great info." - Westminster, Colorado
"I have been so pleased with the course I purchased [Toilet Learning]. I live in a small town that is 60 miles from any training for my daycare. Also, most of the classes start before my day with children ends. Your courses have been a perfect solution. I don't have to worry about the date, the time or the subject matter. I plan to use Care Courses for all of my continuing education. Glad you are there." - Wyanet, Illinois
"I have really enjoy taking the courses [Biting Hurts!, Toilet Learning] so far!! I am currently renewing my license after a long leave from ECE. I wish I had this years ago!!! I love the information and it has proven to be so helpful to me and the other staff!!! I feel like I want to take each one as they all apply to everyday life in our daycare day. Thank you !!!" - Fernie, British Columbia
