A few words from our learners
“I was doing lunchroom monitoring at a local school, while I was taking the Daycare course. I really enjoyed the class. You couldn’t ask for a nicer teacher! I showed the Daycare Worker certificate I received from Tri-County Literacy Council to my employer. This led them to offer me more work responsibilities. I ended up assisting the teacher. And again I got to assist the teacher. Am so proud of myself for doing this! I am 65 years old. Then the Covid-19 Pandemic hit and the school was in lockdown, so I wasn’t working. But I am hopeful that when the lockdown is lifted, I will get more hours at the school.” -Caroline Terriah
“Great program! I really like how it’s only 5 weeks long and we have visited at least 3 daycare centres. The experience was great and the hours worked out perfect for me!”
“The training we received was very beneficial to me, since I am planning on taking the Early Childhood Education Program at St. Lawrence College. Our instructor did an excellent teaching job… I highly recommend Tri-County!”
“This is a great opportunity to help you prepare for a job and to learn valuable knowledge of the field… It’s a fun learning environment and the people make you feel welcome. This training also made me aware of other community programs and offers, as well as how to go about opening my own home daycare.”
