I can’t wait to put theory into practice!

The trainer was extremely knowledgable and the presentation wonderfully visual and also practical. The courses were extremely well organised and inspiring. I can’t wait to put theory into practice! I would highly recommend Babyem as a course provider.

have done the Common Core Skills Training last Saturday with Jackie Buckley. It was a lovely course, very interesting and informative. I have learned a lot and would highly recommend it to everyone who works as a nanny or would like to become a nanny. Thank you very much Jackie.

I felt I was starting with the tools I needed.

The course was really helpful. Today was my first day as a nanny, and because of the course and the First aid I felt I was starting with the tools I needed. After the course I decided I wanted to do the extended paper work part, and am excited to see what else there is for me to learn. Thank you so much Em for all your advise, and to Jackie for a great day, and all her patience in answering all our questions. I would recommend your company to anyone looking to start a career in child care, and I think any woman who is thinking to be a mother!!
