Very helpful. It answered a lot of my questions. Easy and clear. Thank you“. Parent, 2023

Amazing course, I was really apprehensive about the next stage as my baby has just turned 5 months so I knew it was coming and I didn’t know where to begin and it was all too overwhelming. I now feel so confident, I understand what everything means and I am really excited for the next stage and I am going into it completely calm. THANK YOU all so much! What a fantastic course!” Parent, 2022
