Very useful, given me a much broader idea about the role of being a midday supervisor and how to help the children in different ways.

Very informative and enjoyable. Plenty to think about and how to build on the positive that we do already. Good to hear someone acknowledge what an important part of a child’s day playtime is. I feel my confidence is boosted. Thank you.

It was very good with useful information. It will be very helpful for me to into action and get the best results for the children.
