I purchased 2 courses and enjoyed them both! They were the best, I learnt so many things l didn’t know. The tutor course had all the techniques, rules, steps about how to tutor a child and how to handle anything when it comes to helping a child. So thank you so much for the courses!

I heard about your training at my interview and I thought it would be a good addition to my CV. I found the training very informative and although I already have Au Pair experience I learnt many new things. The teacher was absolutely brilliant and very enthusiastic, we had quite a few laughs which made the day go by easily.
I heard about Little Sunshines Au Pair Agency from a friend. I am very glad that I attended training with Little Sunshines. The Au Pair course was very informative, the tutor was such a lovely fun lady, and she explained everything very clearly. I will be able to do my job much easier. Thank you so much!!
I am a mom of 3 children and homework was driving me crazy! After attending this course doing homework has become time well spent with my children and a positive experience. Highly recommended.
I attended this course to improve my tutoring skills. I have tutored children of various ages for 3 years and this course opened my eyes to unbelievable things I have never known. My tutoring has improved greatly and I thank the instructor for all her time.
I have never come across a homework course like this and as a teacher I have been exposed to many courses. As a Grade 5 teacher I would recommend this course to anyone who has to do homework with children.
This course has literally been a life changing experience for my children and I. Homework is no longer the daily nightmare it used to be. I now understand why I was struggling so much with my kids and why they were getting so frustrated every day. This course has turned homework into an activity rather than a chore! I am recommending it to all the mothers at my children’s school as well as to friends and family. Kim thank you so much!!
This homework training helped me in so many ways to be a better au pair to the family I work for. My boss and I were really struggling to cope with the amount of homework the children have to do and with this course we have found balance between extra murals, homework and we even get around to doing REVISION. I am so unbelievably grateful to my boss for sending me on this course. Life has become much easier for both of us.
I can’t believe how much information there was. This course is worth the money and I am very grateful to Kim for the way in which she taught the course. It was fun and really well put together.
Thank you so much. I went through the online course, I must say going through the course opened my eyes more wider and I have gained so much knowledge. It also helped me to see other doors opening for me. Thank you.Thank you!
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.
I enjoyed it so much, learned things that I can apply to my everyday life!
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.
All I can say is wow! Thanks so much! It was far more than I expected, extremely informative!
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.
The online au pair course was very informative. All the information was neatly and logically detailed. It was easy to follow and to go through.

I feel much more prepared to be an au pair. I now know what is required of me and how to fulfill the expectations of an au pair. The course was extremely enlightening and taught me a lot about child care.
Great for both young au pairs who are starting out and for experienced au pairs to learn the intricacies of being an au pair. Love the tips about how to deal with difficult 2 year old and assisting with homework. The course will give me daily help.
