Early Childhood Online (self-paced) courses by Pillars are relevant, applicable and doable in your work the next day.  You can plan your learning to fit your schedule. You can take a break and return to your course when you are ready. Our courses are created by teachers for teachers. Take your course at your workplace or in the comfort of your home. When you choose to take the same course at the same time in the same place with a friend there is an opportunity to share ideas and consider ways to implement what you are learning in your classroom
