Grace Okello

Completing my Responsible Adult Course was a positive experience.

The layout of the course was easy to navigate and the course modules were well written.

For instance I particularly enjoyed the prompts to take breaks, and the activities suggested for the breaks.

Overall, I think the Responsible Adult Course offered through Head Start Online School is a great course.

Leah Nicole

I found the online Responsible Adult Course to be extremely educational.

Mariah was a great teacher as she replied straight away to questions I had. I have recommended her to several people!

Thanks so much!
