“As an early years teacher and a mother of 3, I think Sitter Train is just what young carers need. Amazing idea and you covered everything so well”
This was the perfect welcome gift for our AuPair. The course gave our AuPair the right knowledge about what is expected and how to handle most situations. He just had a list of specific questions about how our household was run but other than that he just hit the ground running and we have had a great AuPair experience.
I was a bit hesitant at first as I didn’t know if it would be of good value but I was pleasantly surprised that for someone who had not lived with a family before it was very helpful. It was very easy to follow the plan of things to learn about and understand. It also talks quite a bit about safety which is VERY important when it comes to taking care of kids
I have personally met with the founder of this wonderful resource and can vouch for its credibility, a lot of work has gone into the site to ensure you’re receiving the absolute best advice and training.”
