I cannot speak highly enough of the course delivered by Professor Preedy and Rosie Hamilton McGinty. It was one of the most worthwhile training sessions I have ever attended, providing invaluable information for our parents so that they really can in future bring out the best in their child.

Very informative day lead by extremely knowledgeable practitioners. It was a great refresher on good practice with our little ones. Would highly recommend the course to other parents.

It was a great opportunity for parents and staff to liaise together and relate to “everyday” events that may arise with their children. Also an opportunity to share the “positives” of life. This interactive course highlighted the importance of appropriate sleeping and patterns, realistic boundaries and positive attitudes for young children. Interaction between parents, staff and course leaders led to ideas being shared, questioned and developed. Adequate rest, nourishment, quality time and tactile play opportunities are essential for a child’s physical and emotional development and wellbeing.

Following my attendance at the Parent Partnership training, I have put into place and changed a number of things and can honestly say that the relationship and bond with my child is now greater than ever.  This is such a worth - while workshop to attend, that makes a huge difference.  I personally thought I was a 'brilliant' mother, however during the course I realised that some of my behaviour was having an adverse effect on my child, which I have now rectified to the benefit of us both. Brilliant workshop!
