Care Courses Quiz Answers

Are you work­ing on a Care Course right now? Are you search­ing for Care Cours­es quiz answers? 

Well, look no fur­ther, because this blog is going to show you exact­ly where to find the answers to all of the Care Cours­es quizzes. “Real­ly?” Yes! Absolute­ly! “Well, where can I find the Care Cours­es quiz answers?” I’m going to tell you! 

Your quiz answers are locat­ed in the course material!

This blog won’t tell you that the answer to the ques­tion you’re stuck on is “A.” It won’t explain that you should choose Roman numer­als “I, II and IV” and that the answer is “D.” It won’t sug­gest you go look up answers on Wikipedia! 

What will this blog do?

This blog will give you the secret to find­ing answers to any Care Course you decide to study. We promise, after read­ing your course’s lessons a few more times and imple­ment­ing the tips we’ve pro­vid­ed here, the answers are going to be jump­ing off the page. One of the biggest myths about dis­tance learn­ing is that tak­ing cours­es by mail or online doesn’t take any effort. This just isn’t true. It takes time and com­mit­ment, ded­i­ca­tion, and plan­ning. You’re spend­ing mon­ey on train­ing! The things you learn will make your work days more inter­est­ing and fulfilling! 

As a Care Cours­es staff mem­ber I want to help you take charge of your pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment and sup­port you in becom­ing a more informed and even more won­der­ful child care provider than you already are. Here’s our super duper list of tips to help guide you through com­plet­ing your Care Course.

Super duper list:

  1. Pay atten­tion! When you’re work­ing on your course are you devot­ing all of your atten­tion to the lessons? We want to make sure you are absorb­ing the mate­r­i­al so that you find the answers. They are there, but if you’re dis­tract­ed you won’t see them!
  2. Take notes! This is impor­tant both for stu­dents work­ing on Course­Books and those who are work­ing on online cours­es. We’re seri­ous about this! Tak­ing notes by hand can increase com­pre­hen­sion. While you’re read­ing, keep a notepad or sheet of paper in front of you. Keep two if that will help. If you are work­ing on a Course­Book take notes direct­ly on the course pages. High­light things that you think are impor­tant to remem­ber. Use sticky notes to remind you of pages that you’d like to refer back to. If you are work­ing on an online Care Course, print out the course PDF file and take notes direct­ly on the page. (The PDF of your online course can be found using the “Doc­u­ments” but­ton inside your course.)
  3. Take your time! Even if you have a fast-approach­ing dead­line it is very impor­tant that you read the course mate­r­i­al care­ful­ly. Remem­ber, the num­ber of clock hours a course is worth is deter­mined by how long it takes the aver­age stu­dent to read every les­son and answer the quiz ques­tions suc­cess­ful­ly. You have two oppor­tu­ni­ties to sub­mit your quizzes for grad­ing and there are no time lim­its. You have as long as you need to com­plete the course.
  4. Reread and then reread again! Don’t for­get, your quizzes are open note and open book. You may return to the course con­tent to read and study and search for the answers.
  5. Let us know how we can sup­port you! When you want to dis­cuss the course mate­r­i­al just con­tact us.  Our head train­ers want to help you get the most out of your pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment. Of course, we can’t tell you if your answers are cor­rect, but we can dis­cuss the con­tent and help you under­stand it.

How Do I Use a New York EIP Award to Pay for Training?

Are you look­ing for a schol­ar­ship for your New York child­care train­ing? Do you need free child­care train­ing or dis­count­ed train­ing? Are you won­der­ing, “how do I use a New York EIP award to pay for training?”

Educational Incentive Program (EIP)

If you are a New York child care provider and would like to use an Edu­ca­tion­al Incen­tive Pro­gram (EIP) award to pay for Care Cours­es, you’re in luck!  All Care Cours­es are eli­gi­ble for fund­ing through the State Uni­ver­si­ty of New York (SUNY) EIP pro­gram. You can use this fund­ing for our CDA train­ing sets, CDA renew­al sets, and our NY 30-hours in 10 top­ic area train­ing.

In order to use the SUNY EIP award to pay for NY child care train­ing with Care Cours­es, you must first apply for the award.  For more infor­ma­tion about apply­ing for the award, give us a call at 1–800-685‑7610 or go to the SUNY Uni­ver­si­ty of Albany’s Pro­fes­sion­al Devel­op­ment Pro­gram web­site.

Getting Started

To start the process, decide which Care Cours­es you want to com­plete. Then cre­ate your per­son­al Care Cours­es account.

Once you have cre­at­ed your Care Cours­es account, log in or cre­ate an Ear­ly Child­hood Edu­ca­tion and Train­ing Pro­gram (ECETP) account. Then, com­plete your online EIP APPLICATION. Please call us at 1–800-685‑7610 if you are using a paper appli­ca­tion. When apply­ing for a CDA train­ing set, make sure to spec­i­fy which CDA set­ting you want your train­ing in: Preschool Cen­ter-Based, Infant/Toddler Cen­ter-Based, or Fam­i­ly Home. 

Once you’ve applied online, wait for EIP to process­es your appli­ca­tion. You will then receive an email noti­fy­ing you of your award or if addi­tion­al doc­u­men­ta­tion is required. Click on the link in the email from SUNY to accept the terms and con­di­tions and elec­tron­i­cal­ly sign your EIP award. Look­ing for your award sta­tus? You can check the sta­tus of your appli­ca­tion using the EIP award sta­tus search here.

There are two ways you can use the EIP award to pay for child care train­ing with Care Cours­es. You may use the award when plac­ing the order ini­tial­ly or for reim­burse­ment after you’ve placed your order. Below is an expla­na­tion of each method:

How can I place my Care Courses order using my SUNY EIP award?

If you want to order NY child care train­ing with Care Cours­es using your EIP award, you have to receive your award first.  Once you’ve applied for and are grant­ed the award, you can place your order. How? Fol­low these sim­ple steps:

  1. Dig­i­tal­ly sign the EIP award sent to you by SUNY using the link in the approval email.
  2. Log into or cre­ate your Care Cours­es account and make sure your con­tact infor­ma­tion is up to date and the email address in your Care Cours­es account match­es the email address you used to apply for your EIP award. You can update your email address under the My Infor­ma­tion area of your Care Cours­es account.
  3. Email Care Cours­es at to indi­cate which course for­mat you want (online cours­es or Course­Book cours­es with online sub­mis­sion). Indi­cate what cours­es you have applied for using your EIP award and the date you signed the award in the email.
  4. Once we receive the signed online award, we will review and accept award. We will con­tact you if addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion is need­ed. We will then process the order for your course(s) and either send you the Course­Books or the enroll­ment codes for the online cours­es (whichev­er for­mat you indi­cat­ed in your email to us).

Ques­tions? Email us at or give us a call at 1–800-685‑7610!

Use EIP awards to pay for Care Courses

I need to place my order now but I still want to apply for the EIP award to pay for the Care Courses training, how can I receive reimbursement?

If you’ve already placed an order or need to place an order ASAP and still want to use the EIP award for reim­burse­ment, Care Cours­es can help! 

Once you’ve applied for and are grant­ed the award:

  1. Order your Care Cours­es online or by giv­ing us a call at 1–800-685‑7610. Write down your order number
  2. Email Care Cours­es at indi­cat­ing that you are sub­mit­ting an EIP award to Care Cours­es for reim­burse­ment. Include the Care Cours­es order num­ber for the cours­es that you received the award for.
  3. Dig­i­tal­ly sign the online EIP award sent to you by SUNY
  4. Once we receive the online EIP award and your email, Care Cours­es will process a refund for the order you orig­i­nal placed up to the val­ue of the EIP award.

All Care Cours­es are eli­gi­ble for fund­ing through SUNY’s Edu­ca­tion­al Incen­tive Pro­gram (aka EIP awards).

How do I fill out the EIP application form for Care Courses?

Review the ques­tions in the online EIP appli­ca­tion. Make sure to read the entire application.

Here are a few tips for com­plet­ing the appli­ca­tion for Care Courses:

  • The deliv­ery type is “Dis­tance Learning/Online Training”
  • The train­ing type is “Training/Conference/Workshop”
  • The train­ing start date is an esti­mate of when you will begin your train­ing. We rec­om­mend about three weeks after the date you com­plete your application.
  • The train­ing end date is the last cal­en­dar date of that year.

SUNY requires all cours­es paid for through EIP to be com­plet­ed in the same cal­en­dar year that the award was grant­ed. EIP schol­ar­ship appli­ca­tions must be received by Decem­ber 1st of a cal­en­dar year to be con­sid­ered for train­ing in that cal­en­dar year.

Can I use my EIP award for my Child Development Associate (CDA) training and assessment fee?

Yes, EIP awards can be used to pay for NY con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion train­ing, CDA cre­den­tial train­ing, the CDA assess­ment fee, CDA renew­al train­ing and the CDA renew­al fee. EIP awards can­not be used to pay for the CDA Council’s com­pe­ten­cy stan­dards book.

Where Can I get Washington STARS Hours?

Are you look­ing for Wash­ing­ton MERIT hours for your annu­al train­ing? If so, Care Cours­es offers excel­lent dis­tance-learn­ing cours­es for com­plet­ing your required Wash­ing­ton STARS hours.

Washington’s State Training and Registry System (STARS) / Merit

Washington’s State Train­ing and Reg­istry Sys­tem (STARS) records all employ­ment, train­ing, and edu­ca­tion­al his­to­ries for ear­ly child­hood pro­fes­sion­als in the state. Run by Washington’s Depart­ment of Chil­dren, Youth, and Fam­i­lies (DCYF), STARS – also referred to as the MERIT reg­istry – is a great tool for learn­ing valu­able infor­ma­tion about child­care. It can also help you locate rel­e­vant train­ing opportunities.

Addi­tion­al­ly, ear­ly child­hood pro­fes­sion­als in Wash­ing­ton State must com­plete STARS/MERIT approved con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion. Providers in Wash­ing­ton who have been cumu­la­tive­ly work­ing in child care for 12 months must com­plete 10 hours of annu­al STARS hours train­ing each year. This require­ment ensures that child care providers in Wash­ing­ton State are con­tin­u­al­ly enhanc­ing and improv­ing their own skills.

Worried about completing your STARS hours on time? Look no further than Care Courses.

All Care Cours­es are approved through Wash­ing­ton STARS for con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion clock hours. Our con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion cours­es can be used for ear­ly child­care pro­fes­sion­als who work in child care cen­ters, fam­i­ly home child care pro­grams, and school-age child care pro­grams. Care Cours­es is for direc­tors, vol­un­teers, assis­tants, teach­ers, and every­one in between! To see our STARS hours approved cours­es, please vis­it MERIT’s web­site. Care Cours­es is found using the orga­ni­za­tion search.

When you cre­ate your Care Cours­es account, make sure to add your Wash­ing­ton state MERIT Reg­istry ID num­ber to your Care Cours­es account under the Info area of your account. We will report your train­ing to the registry.

1 apple, quar­tered and core removed – you may use either red or green apples, the green ones make the “gums” look espe­cial­ly creepy 5 tbs Sun­but­ter (or oth­er pre­ferred nut-free alter­na­tive spread) ¼ cup of raisins

What to do: 1. Take one apple quar­ter, slice it in half length­wise, then again length­wise. 2. Take one of the new pieces, spread peanut but­ter on it, then arrange the raisins so that they stick out. Think “teeth!” 3.

Notes: Sliced almonds can be used in place of raisins. If you don’t plan to serve these right away, brush the apples with lemon juice so they don’t brown. Feel free to sub­sti­tute all-nat­ur­al, creamy peanut but­ter if there are no chil­dren with nut allergies.

How to Help Children Get Along: Supporting Children Treat Each Other Fairly

Chil­dren are always learn­ing and observ­ing from the world around them. This includes every­thing from the way you react to their mis­takes to stereo­types in our soci­ety. It is your role as a child­care provider to notice children’s stereo­typ­i­cal atti­tudes, the stereo­typ­i­cal com­ments they make, and their actions that stem from these atti­tudes. By help­ing chil­dren notice the error of stereo­typ­i­cal images, ear­ly child­hood pro­fes­sion­als help chil­dren begin to devel­op a sense of fair­ness and jus­tice. So, how do you help chil­dren get along?

By using an exam­ple of gen­der-based stereo­types from our course, First Steps in Child Care: An Ori­en­ta­tion, we will dis­cuss ways that you can help chil­dren learn to treat one anoth­er fair­ly and work together. 

What is a stereotype?

A stereo­type is a wide­ly held idea that is based on par­tial or over­sim­pli­fied information.

Have you noticed boys exclud­ing girls from “real boy” play or from activ­i­ties involv­ing strength? When you see chil­dren express stereo­types, talk with chil­dren about how these atti­tudes and com­ments are based on false information.

  • Talk about how both boys and girls can be pow­er­ful helpers.
  • Read books about female ath­letes who are strong and fast or about brave, strong female fire­fight­ers. Read books about males in help­ing roles, such as male nurs­es or teach­ers. Read books about diversity.
  • Pro­vide exam­ples of both male and female musi­cians, car­pen­ters, and artists.
  • Talk about children’s expe­ri­ences with lov­ing, car­ing fathers, uncles, and grand­fa­thers as well as with lov­ing, car­ing moth­ers, aunts, and grandmothers.
  • Intro­duce activ­i­ties that involve foods, cel­e­bra­tions, and present-day cus­toms of var­i­ous groups.

Use expres­sions of unfair behav­iors as oppor­tu­ni­ties to draw children’s atten­tion to the impor­tance of accept­ing diver­si­ty as a strength and fig­ur­ing out ways to treat all peo­ple fair­ly and just­ly. Help­ing chil­dren explore dif­fer­ences in abil­i­ty, cul­ture, eco­nom­ic class, and racial iden­ti­ty, will pro­vide them with accu­rate infor­ma­tion, you broad­en their aware­ness and under­stand­ing of diver­si­ty and fairness!

Stressed about get­ting this right? We are here to help. Check out our Care Cours­es blog on How do Child Care Providers Deal with Stress. Inter­est­ed in learn­ing about stress in chil­dren’s lives and how to sup­port chil­dren with their stress? Take our course Ear­ly Child­hood Stress: Seri­ous Stress in Chil­dren’s Lives Course.

  • Express Ship­ping: Course­Books typ­i­cal­ly arrive in 3–5 busi­ness days.
  • Pri­or­i­ty Ship­ping: Course­Books typ­i­cal­ly arrive in 6–10 busi­ness days.
  • Free Stan­dard Ship­ping: Course­Books typ­i­cal­ly arrive in 8–15 busi­ness days.

For all non-US/­Cana­da Ship­ping loca­tions, our Course­Books gen­er­al­ly take 4–15 busi­ness days to arrive by Air­mail Par­cel Post.

For infor­ma­tion on US/Canada Express and Pri­or­i­ty ship­ping costs, as well as ship­ping costs to oth­er coun­tries, please check out this page.

Where to?

Anoth­er effect on ship­ping tran­sit time is your loca­tion. Our office is locat­ed in North­ern Vir­ginia, so the clos­er you are to us, the less time it takes the Unit­ed States Postal Ser­vice to deliv­er your order. If you are in a true emer­gency rush to receive your Course­Books, we rec­om­mend using either our Express or Pri­or­i­ty ship­ping options, as the Post Office has a bet­ter track record with the speed of these ser­vices. Our Free Stan­dard Ship­ping option is often quite quick, but we can­not guar­an­tee any­thing faster than 10–15 busi­ness days.

Please let us know how we can help! Call us: 1–800-685‑7610, Mon­day through Fri­day, 9–5 ET, or email us days, evenings and week­ends: We’re here to help!
