I found the training very educational and quiet interesting. I wanted to spend more time in it. I love the question after each session, which made the final exam much easier. I would love to continue with the Diploma level 2.

- Daniella P., Prospective Nanny

I was able to do the whole program from my tablet which was good because I work a lot and have a long commute time. I liked that I could take my time and finish it when I had the time so there wasn't any pressure. Also, the parents I work for were happy that I have more training.
