Student Testimonial


I took the Responsible Adult Course to become a daycare substitute. The course is straightforward and very informative. Therefore it was easy to follow and the testing process was easy. When I had a question for the instructor she got back to me the same day and eased my fears and answered my inquiries. I cannot recommend this business enough!
