I did not see attending college in my future (or in my budget) until this program was brought to my attention. I qualified for the Scholars for Excellence in Child Care scholarship and enrolled at Redland Community College in online classes. I'm now working as the Director of Canadian Valley Child Development Center (my dream job).
