What our customers say about us

I attended with 5 of my female friends, all mums to young babies/children.  We hope to send our husbands on similar course!  I have recommended it to a number of people in work and one couple have signed up for a course with Claphandies in July. The instructor was excellent ? made the subject very real through his examples and stories ? much more...

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!!

"Hi Liza, course was excellent, I found it very practical, and the instructor engaging, friendly and informative. I'm very happy with what I learned and, please God, while confident I hope to never have to use it. I'll be recommending you. Rgds, Conor."

- Conor Waters - Greystones - firstaid course

Liza was excellent and the children warmed to her immediately; she made them the real centre of the party and it meant the parents could relax a little bit more than usual. You could see how much the Birthday Girl enjoyed herself and how excited she was which just made it so worth it for us. Thanks so much!

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 found the course really helpful and interesting. The course content covered a lot of areas and the practical aspect of the course was very good as it was not just theory which made it easier to take it all in and learn. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the instructor was very good and informative. I think would feel a little more confident...

- Mark Mcloughlin - Greystones - firstaid course

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.

- Mary Nohilly - Carmelite Centre - firstaid course

I would definitely recommend the course! Kay was brilliant - her whole approach made everybody feel so relaxed and welcome - so important for first time mothers trying to cope with a screaming baby at her hands - the massage itself is a great way for baby to discover all the different body parts and to have cuddle time with mummy - also really...

- Anikka Stephan - Castleknock - babymassage course

I was very happy with the course content. It was all very relevant. The instructor was very good. He made things easy to understand. He was very interactive with the class and brought a bit of humour to the day, which was good. It was well worthwhile.I am recommending to any parents I know.

- Stephanie More - Greystones - firstaid course

I recently had Liza out for a party in our house for my 1 yr old daughters birthday. We had lots of babies and toddlers and some older kids too. Everybody had a brilliant time including the adults. I found it was a great focus for the party and helped break the ice with some people who had not met before. Liza was brilliant at including all the...
