What Virginia students say: 

Child Care Administration Cover
"Our staff has always been very pleased with your services. They enjoy being able to get training hours on their own time, have liked the variety of topics available, and are always impressed at how quickly the books arrive and the tests are graded. Thank you for your services!”
– Harrisonburg, Virginia
After-School Programs Cover
"I received my order and was very surprised at how fast I received it. I just completed reading the book and getting my thoughts together for the test. I found the book to be very informative as I am in charge of our After School program and our Summer Camp program. I got some great ideas on some of the changes that we could implement into our program. I enjoy being able to get my training at home and enjoyed taking my book outside during the nice evenings and reading!!!! I look forward to the other courses that I plan on taking in the future."
- Colonial Heights, Virginia
"All went well receiving my course order [ Child Development and Guidance ], as always. Thank you for having these courses available. The courses are always very informative & refreshing. It is also so nice to be able to go at your own pace in the comfort of your home. I was very happy to find the courses a few years back and will for sure be using them for years to come. Thanks again. :)"
– Henrico, Virginia
"I just completed the course on the eight intelligences, ' Many Ways to Learn ,' and even though I had received teaching on this before, I still found your course to be informative and I learned new information. I love the convenience of being able to complete my required hours of training hours by taking Care Courses and fitting them into my schedule. Thanks!"
- McGaheysville, Virginia
"I am an experienced teacher, administrator and mentor. I recently left Fairfax County Public Schools to live in the Shenandoah Valley area. I now work at a very nice preschool, and as a result was introduced to Care Courses. As I am sure you are aware, I had to take many classes to remain certified for the state and county, while at FCPS. I am so pleased with my Care Course experience. It is professional, informative and easy to manage. I look forward to taking more Care Courses in the future. Your organization provides education to teachers and childcare professionals in a very meaningful way."
- Broadway, Virginia
