Has anyone taken any online classes/workshops,etc. that is Early Childhood Education/Daycare related? I'm not talking about classes for college credit but just classes in general that might cost $20, $25, $30 or so that just are used for training hours? If so, could you recommend any. I'd just like to take some online training hours and learn some new things at not a huge expense.

Child Care Exchange has a great program:

You earn Continued Education Units from University of Wisconsin Stout by either reading the "Exchange " Magazine and then taing on-line quiz, or you can read on-line articles about specific topics and then quiz on those.

Good luck with whatever you decide!

yes most places that you can go through for the food program will provide you with class's with a minimal fee. ours even will let you take one for free after you x number of menus with out any mistakes.

I also use care courses and I love them. Classes are all bookwork and you mail them in when you're done and I have enjoyed all of them. They are about $40-$50 a piece though but well worth it and can count towards a CDA (as long as you take the correct assortment). There are some that cater to the home-daycare provider.

I'm doing a Care Course right now. Started it yesterday. In Illinois you have to have a course for children with special needs every 3 years I think. So, that's what I'm doing.
It costs $38 for the E-course.
Pretty simple to sign up for and they just e-mail you a PDF file to down load and read on your own schedule.
