What our Alaska students say

"I studied my course non-stop this weekend, except for meals and church. As of this month I have been doing day care for 17 years, and I thought I knew it all. Boy, was I surprised. Now when Monday comes I will know how to treat this one 4-year-old boy with a completely different understanding. I have learned so much from these courses. Thanks again and again."

"I am very pleased with the courses I took. I must say that in my opinion, it is super convenient because right now between work and my family I barely have time to 'comb my hair'... So it is the best way to learn something new, remember stuff I learned long time ago and complete the training hours that I am required to have. Thank you very much for having this wonderful program available for people that do not have time to attend classes like me."

"I love your courses! As a member of the early childhood education community, I have taught for 32 years. It is refreshing to have new information readily available, to review basic information and have it all conveyed in an organized, interesting fashion.”
