What our Georgia Students say

Image for Principles of Child Development
"I started my first course [Principles of Child Development and Learning] last week and am half way through it. I love it because I'm learning so much and being a mother to three children already, I'm learning so much that I myself didn't know. I'm very excited to move foward with this."

"I just want to say Kudos for this [Creating Schedules and Routines] course. What an easy way to get my hours to renew my CDA. As an older teacher who is not so computer literate the test was so easy to take online."
- Norcross, Georgia

"I absolutely love the courses [Child Development and Guidance and Many Ways to Learn for Toddlers and Preschoolers] and plan to recommend the courses in our future staff meeting. The courses are very thorough, easy to understand, and applicable to my child care setting. I’ve learned so much and have applied what I have learned in my role as a Preschool Teacher. I am so glad to have found this school. I am on my way to becoming credentialed. I’ve set a goal and plan to stick to it for future success. Again, thank you Care Courses team."
