I thoroughly enjoyed this course and feel confident and competent in the knowledge I have moving forward with my career as an early childhood educator.
Flexiblity and Support
Pacific Rim offered me the flexibility and support that I needed to complete my ECE schooling. As a mother of 5 children I needed to be able to work at my pace and complete one course at a time. Pacific Rim's Administrative staff and Instructors did not disappoint. They were always quick to respond to my questions and concerns. I highly recommend their professional, friendly and practical approach to education.
New to Online Education
I want to say that I really had an unique and special experience with Pacific Rim Early Childhood Institute.
I was under much stress in the weeks prior to my registration in the program: I was not sure about my English and the prospect of completing one year of on-line study. I was not sure how I would handle my job and expenses while studying. I was thinking of my all responsibilities. But now it is finished and it was marvelous. I will work hard in this field and I will try to always improve.
I would recommend your institute to everyone who wishes to be educator and to work with beauty of children's world.
I appreciate my instructor from bottom of my heart because of her support, understanding and assistance during the program.
"A perfect fit"
I took "Health, Safety and Nutrition" in the winter of 2010. This course was exactly what I needed. I have been working in the ECE field for years and needed a license to continue working at my center. It only took me two weeks to complete the course and now I have the assistant license I need.
The course was a perfect fit to my lifestyle as a busy mom, working full time. I could spend the day working, afternoons with my children and work on course materials once they went to bed. My instructor always offered me quick constructive feedback.
Thanks Pacific Rim!

"I am an international student"
Wow what a journey so far. I am close to the end of my on line Early childhood education course and my practicum is coming in a few weeks. I have already notice a huge transformation in my academic and personal growth. This learning experience has helped me answer many questions about children that I was asking myself many times from my previous work experiences with them.
I have developed new beliefs and attitudes towards how to better understand and rear children, and developed a better understanding of our diverse world.
To be honest, before I started this course, I had my doubts: if I could successfully complete this course as I am an international student and English is my second language. I am glad I overcame my fear and doubts about my abilities and enrolled in to this course. All my worries and questions I was asking my self, such as, “Would I comprehend the text books I am going to use? Would I be able to complete my upcoming assignments? Would I able to finish each course in 10 weeks? Is my English good enough?” weren’t as bad as I thought.
Right from the beginning, I was welcomed by my lovely teacher Amanda, who made me comfortable and at ease during my first work assignments. Since then, she has become my mentor not just in Early Childhood Education, but also in the life. The courses’ text books are very well selected and easy to work with. The activities and assignments are challenging, but consistent and appropriate for each course. And having the course on-line gives me the flexibility to take the course when I can and at a speed that is comfortable for me. The evaluation is fairly rated and, when needed, input is provided.
My teacher and the administrative office is always available when needed. They have been informing me about current benefits that I could get, such as bursaries or funding opportunities, which have helped save my finances.
I have to say, Pacific Rim Early Childhood Institute is a very well structured company, and runs a company in the highest professional way. I highly recommend Pacific Rim Early Childhood Institute to all potential students who are thinking of enrolling into the on-line Early Childhood Education course.
