Here’s what others are saying about CCEI…
At Childcare Network, our teachers love the convenience that CCEI's online training provides. Due to the added convenience, many of our teachers are choosing to complete additional modules well beyond the minimum required hours. As a result, they are expanding their understanding of child development and bringing this new knowledge to our classrooms everyday.
Offering on-line training to the Crème Team Members in a convenient, user-friendly format has enabled them to acquire relevant training and allowed us to provide a consistent message to the schools nationwide. The Executive Directors are pleased to see the newly acquired information being implemented in the classrooms.
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.
CCEI provides a comprehensive course of study to meet all learning needs. I have enjoyed taking programs such as the CDA and The Director's Credential Renewal.
CCEI by far has been positive, motivational and highly educational. I would recommend this program of study to anyone who needs training in the CDA field. Thank you, CCEI.
I liked the feedback provided by the instructor. It was good to know that what I wrote was actually being read and asked to redo when my work was sloppy and not up to par.
It was a great experience and I’m glad I took this course.
The Self Study CDA process through CCEI was perfect. Having an education coach available to answer questions was really helpful! Thank you!
This program helped me achieve my goals to obtain my CDA while running a 24/7 home child care. It is convenient and whenever I had a question, it was answered immediately. My education coach was so supportive, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to obtain their CDA.
I think all child care providers should take the CCEI Online CDA coursework to help them become more knowledgeable in childcare!
This program has taught me a lot of things since I joined a child care center a year ago. It has allowed me to improve my standard of service to the families and children of the center.
My Educational Coach was exceptional in her assistance. She motivated me to complete my course, answered all of my questions promptly, graded my papers quickly giving me excellent feedback, and was nice through it all.
My experience with this program was wonderful! I was able to work as I needed and I had direct contact with my Education Coach. I'm looking forward to taking my next class. Thank you!
My experience with CCEI was wonderful! My instructor was phenomenal, always available, and extremely supportive. The compliance department was always there to let my director know of any documentation that was needed. I was very happy with my coursework and I would recommend this institution to all my friends in the field. Thank you!
The program, by far, is the best I have used. The Student Services department is a wonderful asset to the company. They kept me going and never once turned their back on me. I love CCEI.
Excellent coursework! CCEI has great programs that have
CCEI is the best on line training program I have
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.
The technical department was very patient and courteous and so was my education coach. My computer skills were limited and I received excellent service to accomplish my goal. I thank everyone involved. I am very appreciative!
I highly recommend this CDA course because it is extremely informative and has the most current information on early childhood education.
I am so thankful that I was able to enroll and complete my CDA renewal online with your institute. I found the program to be easy to use and well informative. My coach was great in making sure I knew how well I was doing and that they noticed my progress. I also appreciated the quick responses to my emails regarding my questions or concerns. I felt that the courses were well organized and had great assessment questions and handouts. I also like being able to print out certificate of completion. I had a sense of pride that I sat down, read, answered questions and got a paper saying 'YOU DID IT!' I also liked that it told my how many days I had left to work on courses and how many I completed each day. I had a great experience.
I am very happy with my experience with CCEI. I have referred others to the program and look forward to going on to more courses with CCEI.
I like this program; it was easy to follow and I was able to work at my pace. I learned a lot about why we do certain things and I also am more aware of the process and maintenance it takes to have a successful program.
My education coach is the best!!! Her main focus was to make sure I succeeded in my studies... She motivated me and thanks to her I successfully completed my courses. Thank you!!
This program has helped me have a better knowledge of early childcare education.
This is my first time taking class online, and it was very successful.
I received very helpful information. The coaches are very helpful as well.
I had a great experience and enjoyed every single course!
CCEI was a great experience for me. They really worked with me on all levels to make sure I completed the program. I would recommend them to everyone.
I had an excellent experience. I learned a lot of new and interesting things about childcare that I did not know before. I have shared a lot of it with my parents in my classroom and they were thankful to know these things. I would definitely recommend this course to someone who wanted to work with children.
This program has allowed me the opportunity of a lifetime. Each course was in depth and I actually looked forward to working on it every night after my job as a Pre-K teacher, from 6:30 am to 3:00pm and always staying later to prep/plan/help out. To be able to apply what I learned was an empowering feeling for me. Working as a substitute in all grades for fifteen years, I was just waiting for an opportunity to go back to an "early childhood" Pre-K classroom, which was exciting for me, but all the experience no longer meant anything. Certifications are a must. This was my beginning on making that happen. Through my February layoff as a lead teacher and not thinking I could finish this program out, I am very happy I was able to hang in there. And I look forward to taking more courses and finishing my portfolio.
I learned a lot of information on early childhood education.
I was very impressed with the courses that I took through CCEI. Anyone that I had to speak with was always friendly and I was able to obtain new knowledge about Early Childhood Development.
I am an Assistant Director and a full time mom and girl scout leader. Being able to continue my education and strive towards my goal of becoming a director has made me so happy. I owe it all to the fact that CCEI offered distance learning for my program of study at a fair price and an easy pace. THANK YOU.
CCEI opened up my eyes to a lot of new opportunities on how to work with young children and make my classroom a fun and safe learning environment. The courses were organized and the staff was very helpful and quick to answer any of my questions. Overall, the experience was a rewarding one.
CCEI has made a huge difference for me and allowed me the opportunity to obtain a credential that I had wanted for many years. The courses were always too far away and required me to travel. CCEI's online program allowed me to study at my own pace from the convenience of my own home...Thank you!!
Excerpt from a letter to our staff:
I enjoyed the program, because it was easy to follow online. The coursework was easy to understand. I received a lot of support and encouragement from my educational coach. The staff helped me with registration and enrollment quickly and with care. They also gave me the information needed to receive the T.E.A.C.H scholarship to finance the CDA courses. I am so grateful for the opportunity and support in completing my CDA courses.
This program was awesome! Easy to use and navigate. I was done in four months when, in a community college, it would have taken a year or two. I look forward to signing up for my Director’s Credentials next session. I could not have been more pleased with my results. This program was easy to follow, gave me plenty of information and resources, and always had a coach ready to answer questions. I have two children and work full-time. I did one section a day and am amazed at how short the time was.
CCEI was helpful from my first inquires to completion. The few times that I had questions about the program, they responded and if they didn't know the answer, got back to me quickly with the answer.
I had a great experience. The material was very organized and easy to comprehend.
I enjoyed the ease of taking these courses at my leisure and the information was very applicable.

It was a great experience to be part of CCEI. I will be coming back to do my CDA soon. Thank you for doing such a great job in training me and giving me valuable information.
This course is very informative to my career in early childhood. Very helpful.
In my experience with CCEI, everyone was helpful, courteous and more than willing to help in any way possible.
I really enjoyed my experience with CCEI. I am able to bring more knowledge into the child care field. I feel better prepared to handle conflicts with peers and parents. I definitely enjoyed taking advantage of the Maryland Credential Program and I will be referring my friends to CCEI.
I really enjoyed taking courses through CCEI. Everything was really self-explanatory and helpful. Thank YOU.
I run my own daycare center and I needed to enhance what I already know and how I perform within my program. CCEI gave me that perfect opportunity. I'm telling anyone who is willing to listen, that I am so pleased with the broadening of my education and new horizons that this program has enriched me with. I feel so blessed! When I can say, "Hey, I get it. I have more understanding and insight into how I can do that better for my children, their families and my community," you can't ask for anything better. Thank you CCEI, what a great awakening experience this has been and a special thanks to my on-line coach.
I had an excellent experience with CCEI and I will definitely return soon for professional development.
This is a great program. It is easy to follow. It is so nice to be able to do it on your own time 24/7.
I have worked in the Early Childhood field for several years now, and I must say, CCEI was still able to "teach an old dog new tricks." Taking this course convinced me to finish my college degree.
I was pleased with the ease of use. The coursework has prepared me for my CDA Assessment. I was able to use much of the information in my current position as an Early Childhood Educator. Thank you!!!

It was easy to register for courses and completing coursework was convenient to my schedule. I finished in half the time that I expected. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to get an education in early childhood.
This was the toughest year of my life. I am a mom of two young children, work full time, and went through a very trying year. There were so many times that I thought, ‘There is no way I can do this. There is no way I can finish this,’ but with support of family friends, and CCEI employees, I was able to!
I would like to say that I have learned so much new material and great ideas that I am looking forward to using in my classroom. I LOVE my teacher and would recommend her to anyone. She wrote me and talked to me on a regular basis over the last few months. She made me feel like I knew her on a personal basis. I loved the experience that I have gained in these courses.
I learned a lot of new things. I had an awesome experience and I would recommend this school to anyone. I absolutely recommend my teacher to EVERYBODY!!
It was a great experience and all the materials were clear.

CCEI coursework gave me the manageability that I needed to obtain my credentials. I work ten to twelve hour days and the flexibility and staff support made it possible for me to finish. I enjoyed and recommend the CDA program.
I enjoyed my course work with CCEI! I found the courses to be informative and interesting. Some of the material helped me in my current work with children and I'm sure more of the information will come in handy in the future. The courses were well organized and in a format that was easy to use. I will probably come back and do another certificate program with CCEI. I've already recommended CCEI to co-workers!
I found CCEI to be an excellent way to achieve my educational goals. The online classes allowed me to work at my own pace. Having an educational coach available gave me confidence to excel.
I have become the teacher of the month for two months since I enrolled in the FCCPC program at CCEI. And now, I will soon be getting a promotion for my outstanding performance.
I love CCEI! As a mother of two and an owner of a childcare, I have used CCEI for 3 years now! I have used CCEI for in-service training as well as their certification programs. I couldn’t have done it with out CCEI, and I plan to continue using them for all of my Early Childhood Education needs.
