"Our helper, Nuraini, greatly benefited from having attended the nanny training as she learned many practical strategies to support our your son in a more respectful way. She is better able to slow down, give him space and allow him to explore the world in his way." - Silva, mother of 1 year old Arthur

"I just wanted to say thanks so much for a fantastic course. My helper came back with a whole new perspective on childcare, play and discipline. ... She has even taken to gently correct Ellie's other caregivers (my parents) for using distraction. In all I am very pleased and would recommend this course to all my friends' helpers." - Jolene, mother of 1 year old Ellie

"Before the course, I only knew what I had to do but didn’t really know why. Now, after coming to this course, I understand why we do certain things when we take care of babies. I knew it in my mind, but now I know it also in my heart." - Anonymous
