What our customers say about us

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
