The Workshops you are providing are such a help to me! The service you provide that allows me to sit in my own home and complete these workshops and still feel I have come away with more knowledge and educational ideas than when I started them is key to staying current! "

"I really enjoyed all your ideas for different, concrete, usable ways to foster math learning with Preschoolers. I will definitely be using some of your suggestions! And in general I loved the course...it was easy to use and very useful. Your ideas were clear and very real with things I have already in my home that I can use. Plus, because there was the assignment part of the course, it made me think of how I can incorporate your ideas into my little group. I really look forward to taking some of your other classes. Thanks a bunch!"

Vivian, Early Childhood Educator, BC, January 2016
"Thank you so much for taking the time to put together trainings for preschool teachers! In this economy, it is difficult to afford offsite trainings (most teachers have little or no budget) and is difficult to find trainings that fit teacher's schedules. Your trainings are convenient, affordable, easy to take and are informative--based on everyday needs of the children in our care. They provide great suggestions for ideas for activities, educate on how the content area helps the growth and development of preschoolers as well as offer suggestion to teachers on how to implement the content area (i.e. Sensory Play) into the teacher's planning. Your workshop has helped me to meet the state of Nebraska (United States) annual training requirements and helped me to refocus on a core area that has, to be honest, been neglected in our classroom! Thank you again!"
Cheryl, Preschool Teacher and Website Owner

Megan, BC, January 2015
"Thank you so much, Christine, for creating these awesome workshops. I like that I can do them at my own pace, in the convenience of my home. I enjoy the many tips and ideas and have used many, which brings smiles to the children in my care. "Scat the Cat" Felt board story is a favorite of theirs. I personally enjoyed the memories your questions stirred up. Engaging in wonderful conversations for some of the answers gave us a chance to share great stories. I have learned much from your workshops and they are fun, an added bonus! Thank you!!"
Norah, Family home childcare, NJ, February 2014
"I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity through your classes to learn more about early childhood education. It will be really helpful as I prepare to renew my teaching license this year. I enjoyed all of your classes and I look forward to any new classes you will be preparing!"
