Coffee mug for preschool teachers and toddlersIt's not always easy to stay on top of your game so we'd like to offer some assistance, from fun activities in our Facebook posts, to useful links and informative articles about the early learning field on our website. So, like us on Facebook, browse our catalog of online classes, and peruse our website for the latest and greatest in early learning--it's all about teachers!

Also check out our free child care community forum.  Chat with peers about child care best practices, challenging behaviors, how to manage stress and all the things teachers go through every day!  Our classes also have links to the forum so you can discuss topics within the classes as well.
