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.
I found these classes to be exactly what I needed. I was a new mom at home questioning if I wanted to open a daycare. These classes not only convinced me but gave me the tools I need to support my family.
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.
The CCEI program over all was excellent. the registration process was easy and I was quickly registered for the program. The information included was very informative and very well explained. I was very pleased with the multiple programs that are offered and I will encourage our staff to take a look at the programs and enroll in them.
I enjoyed my experience and felt the program was informative.
I was very satisfied with the CCEI Special Needs Certificate program - I gained a lot of knowledge, it was easily accessed and time allowed for study and completion was great! I also liked how the individual sections allowed for returning to content if needed and that you could print your certificates for each individual content topic after completion- this gave a sense of accomplishment and reward for completion.Thank you CCEI!"
I think all child care providers should take the CCEI Online CDA coursework to help them become more knowledgeable in childcare!
Easy to sign up, and the courses are laid out amazingly. So easy to learn, and very educational. I look forward to applying everything I've learned here in my own child care center!
CCEI Is wonderful. The courses are painless! What makes it even better is my job pays for it! AWESOME!
CCEI was easy to use and allowed me to work on my CDA at my own pace. I could work as fast or as slow as I needed to based on my work schedule.
I really liked this online course for marketing I think every director should take something like this. It really did help me to think about how to market my program and help me to define the areas I needed to strengthen. Also, it is extremely user friendly as well as convenient. I really liked that I could do this at my own pace in my own defined time frame, as a very busy administrator that was really important.
CCEI provided training that helped me to become a better educator, and offered me a chance to build my course work schedule abound my work and family obligations. The course work was relevant and challenging, and I feel better able to meet the needs of the children in my care with what I've learned in the course.
CCEI provides an excellent, meaningful, and relevant training program for working professionals. I am extremely happy with my experience and have learned so much that I apply to my daily work.
CCEI is the best on line training program I have
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 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.

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.

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.

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.
