"We could have had a whole day of the training as it was so inspiring. Yolanda presented the course with so much passion. The training reiterated what’s already happening in our kindergarten, but now we have the knowledge to put it in the right sequence and give extra activities and ideas to add to our daily programme."

"The training was very affirming. To learn the value and meaning of what you are already doing was fabulous. Also, I learnt new information and practical strategies to enhance further phonics teachings in ECE. It was awesome. I could have stayed the whole day! I can’t wait to do more of this in our kindergarten."
