Child Care Mentor, Mary Wardlaw explains why this is a better way to learn.

"The training in this program is different than any other early childhood training out there. It puts you into the classroom setting, it gives you practice and changes the way you think. It leads to behavioral changes and that leads to a more positive environment."
