What our customers say about us

Yes it was a lovely party! A couple of parents have already asked for your your details as their kids really enjoyed it. Rosa was a bit quiet on the day but has since said: " it was the best party ever." Thank you to Liza for a great day!

- Irene Lewis - Rosa's 6th Birthday Party - War Memorial Hall Terenure - playparty course

I thought the course was good and the content was appropriate. I liked the fact that it dealt specifically with children. I would feel more confident now dealing with an emergency. It was worthwhile and I would recommend it to others.

- Lara Hynes - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Hi Liza, the course went really well, the instructor Patricia was extremely competent and approachable. Everybody on the course was happy with the course content and preferred doing the course in my house, among friends. I will certainly recommend your company to my friends if needed in the future, Caroline

I found the course extremely benefical --- whilest I would probably still panic in an emergency, I would feel more confident to deal with a first aid crisis than before & would I think feel more confident knowing what to do. The course content was very relevant --- I would recommend to others.
