Where We Began


Many years before public policy started recognizing the importance of educational practice in child care in child care, our philosophy was established; young minds and bodies grow and learn best through individualized care. Our team leaders have worked diligently for over 20 years to model unconditional acceptance and logical guidance techniques.


Over the years, we have provided educational services in numerous arenas, including home education, national conference, staff training, and independent advising services. In 2006, the Successful Solutions online education system was launched.

Where We Are Now


Successful Solutions Professional Development offers respected high quality education at reasonable prices. We are a leading online training organization, offering the most comprehensive student support available in a web based learning environment. Our online education has recently expanded to include opportunities for adult high school students, business professionals, college students, homeschooling youth and nannies. We continue to educate child care center directors, staff, preschool teachers, and family child care providers across the nation.
