"I have really enjoy taking the courses [Biting Hurts!, Toilet Learning, and Mixed-Age Groups in Early Childhood Programs] 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 !!! "

"Thank you so much for the opportunity to take this bundle course [Responsible Adult Training] online. It was a wonderful experience to navigate this very well organized bundle course. I easily accessed every section. The course philosophy is based entirely on preparing a caregiver for the most important mission: to raise valuable human beings who can assure real progress through cooperation, not through competition. I valued this vision the most. I've completed the course fully energized and ready to apply everything I learned from it, and to enrich children's experiences. "
- Vancouver, British Columbia
