"I am working on my Child Development Associate for Preschool and have done my classes through Care Courses. The classes have always gone smoothly and I knew where to get help if I needed it. The best part was how fast I get the child care certifications after I complete a class.

I am very glad I choose to take the CDA classes through Care Courses."
