What our customers are saying

I’m amazed at how practical the content is

I cannot send this email without thanking you and your team for making such an amazing course! To be sincere, I started taking it because I thought a certificate would look good for prospect families, but now I’m going through it, I’m amazed at how practical the content is, how much the quizzes aid my learning, how fun it is to study and how user-friendly the site is. I’m a teacher and programmer myself, so it’s not often that I’m completely happy with how online courses are structured pedagogically and in terms of user experience. In this case, I can safely say that I am! So keep up with the good work and thank you for making this resource available!

Thank you Sitter Train for helping us settle our au pair into life in our family

What a wonderful course! Thank you Sitter Train for helping us settle our au pair into life in our family. We weren’t sure if we could spend the time needed to invest in teaching yet another au pair what to do but you did it for us! All we had to do was show her our timetable and certain things we liked our way!
