We provide online child care courses to early childhood educators. We cover a wide range of topics. Our most popular main course categories are art and literature, learning centers, child physical growth and development, curriculum, special needs, and lesson plans. We offer other main course categories by age including infant, toddler, preschool, and school age.  Finally,  a group of main childcare training course categories for early childhood educators are family and community relationships, health, and safety, learning center management, motor skills, preschool, S.T.E.M., social-emotional, staff well-being, and time management.

Our course catalog page has a search feature that easily allows you to easily search our early childcare course descriptions for specific content. The author of our courses has an extensive background as an early childhood teacher, center director, and course author. As a result, our online early childcare courses are developed with real-world experience and practical application in mind. Moreover, every course is developed from extensive research and is based on current early childhood development theory.

All of our early childcare courses include additional recourses that you can refer to for deeper study. Furthermore, many of the resources can be downloaded for your future use. Our courses also offer a note-taking feature where you can write, download or print your notes for future use. Finally, as we recognize there are many different learning preferences, our courses can be taken with audio enabled or disabled as every word is both spoken and written. The courses can also be purchased in bundles. This allows you to save on every course. We offer 15, 25, 50, 75, 100, and 225-hour early childcare course bundles with hourly rates as low as $2.60. We can also create custom course bundles if you need a different number of hours for your staff.
