Michael Gonzalex Testimonial

I’ve been in the profession for 10 years and have done self-paced training in the past that was easy to skip through. I was worried that completing it online wouldn’t be as great, but I didn’t feel that way about CCEI.

When I took their courses for my CDA program, the interface was friendly, thorough and easy to digest. Every part of it was engaging and I learned new, relevant information. The reflective exercises were also helpful. I instantly got a certificate for each module I completed.

I highly recommend CCEI’s courses to other educators.

Enola Garland

Executive Director of the Colorado Association for the Education of Young Children (COAEYC)

 I have worked in the early childhood education field for over 15 years and am currently a center director. CCEI is by far the best option for me and my staff for meeting our state required training needs. The flexibility to be able to take courses any time is invaluable to me. My staff can take courses at school or at home 24/7. The cost is by far the most reasonable around. The personal service is incredible from the first sales contact to technical support to personal education coaches we have had a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend the CCEI program to any center director looking to provide the highest quality training options for their staff at the best price.

 I would like to express my appreciation to the Childcare Education Institute (CCEI) for all that you do to help Child Care Professionals. The training courses, such as the Director’s Certificate and the Child Development Associate Programs are only a few that are offered that we have used. Because the courses are online and self paced, it has been convenient in assisting our training department with helping staff achieve their Early Childhood credentials. I have been impressed by the way the Childcare Education Institute staff goes above and beyond to make sure that our Early Childhood Education Professionals are taken care of and have reached their goals. I highly recommend Childcare Education Institute to any individual or organization interested in expanding their educational training needs.
