Care Courses has been a distance learning school specifically for early childhood professionals since 1990. We offer professional development early childhood (ECE) training that has helped thousands of early childhood professionals get their CDA (Child Development Associates Credential) as quickly and painlessly as possible, while at the same time helping them to better understand their children and business. Our authors are constantly working to produce interesting courses on relevant topics that will help with all areas of child care and day care management.

Try one of our home-study, mobile-friendly, distance-learning courses to learn how easy it can be to get interesting, informative clock hours. Care Courses allow you time to think about the material and to understand it at your own pace. You can read the material over and over, and the information is right there when you are taking the quizzes. If you have any questions you may always contact us for help. You don’t have to travel anywhere, find (and pay) babysitters for your own children, search for a place to stay, or lose your weekends. Our courses come to you!

Care Courses put the fun back in your day, giving you lots of interesting activities to try and some fresh new perspectives. As one of our students put it, "This was just excellent material. At 65 with 17 years of teaching it provided new insights and valuable information. I needed it!"

Receive the clock hours listed by each course title by studying the course materials, answering questions based on the reading and submitting your answers to us. We'll grade your work and issue you an online certificate (upon successful completion).
