What our Canadian students say

"I am an early childhood educator of 43 years and am quickly approaching retirement. I have enjoyed these courses [Challenging Behavior: Positive Guidance in Child Care] as a “refresher” of what I have studied, but have found that there definitely is a different approach to dealing with behavior. I will be able to apply this new knowledge in my last year on the work force. I thank you for all of the support and hope to see this type of distance learning continue. Early childhood is an important career and our performance in the classroom is the foundation of each child’s future!"
