Marcelle Hyman
Thank you very much for the very informative au pair course, you gave yesterday. A must for any au pair reentering this field of work. It was a great experience. The lecturer is extremely proficient in her teaching techniques and her vast knowledge of what to do, not to do or expect from your employer. This course is a must for all au pairs, with or without knowledge. What a wonderful insight it gave me. The lecturer truly is a true ambassador for Little Sunshines.

Ashleigh Williams
I enjoyed it so much, learned things that I can apply to my everyday life!

Anna Schultz
I saw this on internet search (Germany) and because it was not expensive I decided to buy it and see. I was very surprised. Normally a course like this is very expensive. I went over the instruction at night and after a week I was finished. I received my certificate 2 days later. It had so much information. I couldn’t believe it. I have told many work colleagues to buy this course.

Kate Koukoularis
All I can say is wow! Thanks so much! It was far more than I expected, extremely informative!

Emily Ndlovu
I saw this advert at my church and my pastor said he has heard good things about it so I purchased it. I couldn’t attend the course because I live too far and my internet isn’t good so I purchased the manual. It was sent to my email straight after I made the payment. I was so happy because I was worried it was a scam. The information was very good. I showed my pastor the manual and the certificate and he now recommends the course to all the people in matric and to domestic workers, au pairs and to teachers to help them with their jobs. We are all very happy. Thank you Little Sunshine. You are helping many of us.
