Happy Customers

Q. What are the things that you liked about the course?

Young parent: I liked the practical
lessons (…) like making play
dough; I can go home and do it,
and it’s stuff that you use every
day anyway, like everyone has
flour in their house (…) and
making the treasure basket… I liked watching
movies on youtube about
obesity and healthy eating and
learning about what kind of
stuff I give to my son when he’s a bit older (…) there’s nothing I didn’t really like. I enjoyed all of it.

Q. Anything positive that you got out of the course?

Young parent: Yes, I feel I am a better mum now (…) I learnt a lot about what kinda [kind of] stuff I could do with my child, for example when my child misbehaves I will know certain reasons why (…) it made me wanna [want to] do childcare at the college even more…
