It is absolutely wonderful! I found it so informative and I just loved the way it's broken down into milestones and so granular. That's the part that really appealed to me as somebody who is just getting into this space. I think that's a very good first step to take.

I like HEI Schools because they have the highest standards of safety and education.I have been teaching preschoolers for nine years and counting, and never in my entire career have I experienced this way of training.

I feel confident in taking the course even though I’m working in a full-time position simply because the platform is so awesome and practical and I can do it all at my own pace. I also love the fact that I can apply all the methods I’m learning with the kids I work with and improve our daily routines.
