"I loved doing it [CDA Renewal Set] from y'all! I enjoyed it being at my own pace. Thanks again for offering these classes."

"Care Courses is a great way that is helping me obtain my CDA all while still being a mother and preschool teacher. I am enjoying the information of the courses to apply to my classroom along with my own children at home. I love the format and promptness of the grading from the quizzes."
