Our Commitment to Quality
We strive for quality and consistency in everything we do, but don't just take our word for it! We've taken very laborious steps to earn independent verification of our program so you can be assured our quality meets and exceeds your expectations...all the time, every time.
Our child care training classes are all written by subject-matter experts, most of whom have direct experience working with children. The content is intended to provide child care professionals with both theoretical and practical information about child grow and development to allow you to most effectively support the children in your care. Our curriculum also includes courses directly applicable to adult professional development as well, such as Program Management, Professionalism, Budgeting, etc.
Our classes are all web-based with easy access on any device and incorporate elements to accommodate multiple learning styles. Additionally, all our courses contain a “Continued Learning” section at the end that provides additional resources for you to explore and learn more about a particular topic. You can also use our free community forum to participate in discussions with your peers about content from the class or general topics related to child care.
"We Care, Because You Do!" We live by those words everyday. Each month we support a cause that is important to our valued customers, by promoting awareness, increasing knowledge through our online classes and providing financial support with each purchase.
Summer Meal Programs
Summer can be a difficult time for children who depend on school meals as possibly their only source of good nutrition all day. When school is out, they may be struggling for meals each day.
There are many options to help support these children. If you know of families who need help, the Summer Food Service Programs may be able to provide support. Please pass this information along to the families in your program.
SafeGard Classes Online will also send a donation to these programs for every purchase of our online childcare course "Good Nutrition for Children" through the end of August.
Thank you for your support!
