- Fernie, British Columbia

"Thank you so much for the opportunity to take this course [Responsible Adult Training] online. It was a wonderful experience to navigate this very well organized 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

“The course [Challenging Behavior: Positive Guidance in Child Care] was very easy to read and understand. I felt confident learning and testing with the skills I’d read about and am now eager to practice. My son and daughter will benefit greatly from me taking this course. I will be calmer and explain my reasoning behind my decisions and as mentioned before I will be much more inclined to respond versus react.”
