What our customers say about us

I found the first aid course very good and would definitely recommend it. My only fear is I wouldn't remember how to do CPR in an emergency as most also felt. My recommendation to you would be to do up some score cards laminated for infant, toddler and adult CPR and choking so in an emergency one could glance at them. Overall, 10/10.

- Fiona Garvey - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Lara adores her play lab, she starts shrieking with excitement as soon as we drive in to the carpark! She thoroughly enjoys the songs and bubble time and the activities are fantastic as I can see her adapting her newly learnt skills at home. It is her second term and she is still as keen as her first day!!

- Kate Dowling - Terenure - Toddlers - playlab course

I really enjoyed the course and found it very very worthwhile. The instructor in particular was very informative and personable and made the day very interesting. The practice hands on sessions were particularly useful. I have since recommended the course to others. In fact I think this course should be compulsory to all new parents.Great course

- Aoife O'Shea - Harcourt St - firstaid course

I was looking for something to do with my daughter, Emma on my day off from work. I was looking for something that we could interact with eachother instead of just bringing her to the playground or for a walk. So I started looking around and I googled items to do and clap handies came up. Emma and I both really enjoy the class as we are both...

I had Claphandies come and do my sons 4th Birthday on Sunday and it was the best fun. Liza is so engaging and fun and all of the children had a wonderful time. She had loads of activities planned which the children all loved. I would recommend Claphandies for birthday parties for all children and would definitely book them again! Kate

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found it really beneficial. I did a first aid course about 12 years ago for work but couldnt remember any of the content and now that I have a baby, I felt that I really needed to know what to do if a situation arose. The course instructor was very nice and made the course very enjoyable. The structure of...

Really wanted to say a big thank you. If you could please pass on a massive thank you too Louise , she really made the day. All the babies and toddlers loved her and the parents. Sure got a load of great comments from the parents and the loved the fact the kids went for two hour marathon sleeps afterwards cause they were all so wrecked.

- Veronica Ruddy - Charlie's 1st Birthday Party - Park Community Hall Ballycragh - playparty course

The course was absolutely fantastic. The content was everything literally that I could have hoped, very comprehensive. Caron was excellent as she incorporated questions and experiences throughout the day. I was amazed how well she managed everything as often at the end of a 1 day course there'll be a bit that gets skipped over and you might be so...

- Kathryn - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Thank you for your mail regarding the First Aid Course. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and thought it very worthwhile. Our Instructor, Trisha, was fantastic. She is very professional and has a vast amount of experience and knowledge. I have already recommended the course to anyone I have spoken to since.

- Marcelle Gribbin - Malahide - firstaid course

I really enjoyed the First aid course. I felt the instructor was great very approachable and knowledgeable. I feel I benefited greatly from it and would like to think that I could act confidently should an incident arise. I would definitely recommend it to friends. The content was just right for a day long course. Thanks for organizing it, it is...
