  • Health and Safety
  • Communicating with a child
  • Responsibilities of a babysitter
  • Making a child's toy

Here is what one of our learners had to say;

“This 7 week course was very informative and well worth your time if you would like to get a qualification to add to your CV. The instructor was very good as I needed special measures added due to some surgery I had to have and they just filled me in as soon as I was back. This was a great 7 weeks and I would advise anyone who wants to earn some extra money to look into taking the course. The course consisted of 7 parts and we covered one per week and in each section we would complete the final week project over all 7 weeks. The training I took gave me, first aid skills, child behavior  and more skills that I can use in later life.”
