What our Mississippi students say

image for toddlers in childcare early childhood training program
"Thank you for offering this program [Toddlers in Child Care]. As a busy mom of three my weekends are full of family things. This I could do at night after the boys went to bed."

"As usual, I am enjoying this course [Nurturing Children's Self-Esteem]. Almost done! It is full of useful information and some new activities to do with 'my' preschoolers. On a personal note, I am a grandparent to a just over 2 year old and a 3 month old, so your course is a good refresher on a much younger note also."
