What early years centre directors are saying…

‘Thoroughly enjoyed the insight and hands-on information on the day. I certainly can take information gained on the day back to our services in our every-day work with the staffing team and/or families at our centres.’– Marie Ligonis, City of Canterbury Bankstown.
‘Parentshop provided me with an insight into how to approach difficult situations. ‘Tough Conversations’ training really taught me strategies and sentence starters to begin and continue a professional discussion with parents and/or staff. It was very influential and I connected with the content of the training as it was catered for the early years sector.’ – Marianne Nastevski, Integricare Children’s Centre.
‘Clear, concise information. Very relevant material and the session gives me confidence to put strategies into practice’– Colleen Wyles, John Street Community Early Childhood Co-Op.
