What Our Students Say

“The benefit of the creative stuff is just learning different activities that you could do with the children when you’re in the setting or learning what activities they actually like to do, or they prefer to do, that’ll actually help them with their development. You can even use [the kitchen] as different activities to do with the children, so, like making buns with them.”


“The facilities like the kitchen are so great because you get to learn about what nutrition children need, and you can make at home yourselves to look after the children or even in the nursery making different things for lunch and snack time”
