First Aid Feedback

I really enjoyed the course and found it very very worthwhile. The instructor in particular was very informative and personable and made the day very interesting. The practice hands on sessions were particularly useful. I have since recommended the course to others. In fact I think this course should be compulsory to all new parents.Great course - Aoife O'Shea - Harcourt St


"I was very happy with course content...... covered everything. Patricia, the instructor was terrific ! It was so interesting and I was disappointed when it finally came to an end as I was so engrossed. It was definitely worthwhile and I am so much more confident in administering First Aid to the children. I would recomment you highly to others." - June Woods - Malahide


"I really enjoyed the first aid course. The content was very comprehensive & the instructor was excellent. I liked the fact that the course included alot of practical demonstrations. Hopefully I won't ever have to use the skills learnt but I would definitely feel more confident in handling an emergency with my child should one arise. It was a very worthwhile course and I would highly recommend it to all parents & those looking after children." - Anne Marie MacCormack - Harcourt St


Dear Liza, Alexis was delighted with the course and can't stop advising people to attend it. Thank you very much. - Alexis Murphy - Harcourt St


This was a very good crash course on what to do in an emergency. I feel more confident minding my 4 mth old after attending the course. - Ciara Dodd - Carmelite Centre


"Yes I really found the course worthwhile and have been recommending it to all my friends with kids! The instructor was excellent and I would certainly feel more confident in an emergency. Is there a section on the website to give feedback?" - Jennifer Kelly - Harcourt St


The course was excellent. John McCormac the presenter was also super. He had a lovely style and I really learnt a lot from him. In fact it is quite shocking how little I really knew about first aid before hand. It should be a mandatory course for all parents! - Anna Scally - Harcourt St


I thought the course was good and the content was appropriate. I liked the fact that it dealt specifically with children. I would feel more confident now dealing with an emergency. It was worthwhile and I would recommend it to others. - Lara Hynes - Harcourt St


Hi Liza, The course was excellent, I couldn't find one thing negative to say about it and I have to say the guy giving the course was very very good. It was that good I spent the evening telling my husband about all the things I learned. I found out about the course through reading about your website on the Independent supplement. I would definitely recommend the course to others. - Fiona Henry - Harcourt St


"Everyone that attended the course found it extremely beneficial. The mix of discussion and practical work kept it interesting. Fergus, our trainer was also excellent. I have since recomended your company to 2 groups of people and would not hesitate in doing so for anybody else. I feel much more confident now that I could handle an emergency situation a lot better than before I did the course." - Olivia McCarthy - Harcourt St


Baby Massage Feedback

Hi Liza, I just wanted to drop you a quick email regarding the massage course I attended in Rathfarnham recently (finished up last Friday). I just wanted to say that the massage tutor, Julie, was absolutely fantastic. I have attended a couple of courses pre- and post natal, & Julie's classes really stood out as being the most enjoyable & beneficial for both my baby & I. I know the other two ladies who attended with me also aggreed that she was most welcoming, informative & inclusive course instructor - she really is an asset to you. I will be reccomending her class to anybody who will listen! - Pauline Forsyth - Terenure

I would definitely recommend the course! Kay was brilliant - her whole approach made everybody feel so relaxed and welcome - so important for first time mothers trying to cope with a screaming baby at her hands - the massage itself is a great way for baby to discover all the different body parts and to have cuddle time with mummy - also really enjoyed the swapping of stories with the other mums and we have all swapped numbers and plan on meeting up again, so it was a great way to meet mums with babies of the same age - looking forward to PlayLabs in the autumn already! - Anikka Stephan - Castleknock

PlayLabs Feedback

My two toddlers LIVE for their Claphandies sessions - there's a mad rush to get dressed and out the door on the morning of their playlabs - no bribes needed to get a 'move-on' on those mornings! They love their class leader and the variety of the activities within each session ensures their attention never wanders. They especially enjoy 'bubble-time'. I really feel that Claphandies has been invaluable in cultivating their personal developmental skills and has enabled their social skills to flourish. My daughter is in the process of moving on to pre-school and I believe attending Claphandies has helped make the tranistion much smoother - it's helped give her the confidence needed - gone is the shy little girl who started two years ago. Thanks Claphandies:) - Orla O'Malley - Marino - Toddlers

ClapHandies has a really unique and age appropriate twist to the traditional play group you’d find in most places. The engagement of each individual child within the group by the PlayLab leader is a very nice personal touch and the activities always change from week to week. - Rita - Glenageary

Really both enjoyed the class - Dora Okane - Marino

This is what Aoibheann aged 3 says about Clap Handies: 'My favourite part is the songs, I like when the dishes are in the Surprise House too. I love when I get there and see all my friends. Ciara does the teaching she's great, when I get there she has all the mats to sit on, and my other favourite thing is when she puts the music on and we make the bridge. Thursdays are my favourite day.' Aoibheann's Mum says: 'Aoibheann really loves her weekly session in Clap Handies. She is up and dressed extra fast on Thursdays, and recently informed her Gran that she was unavailable for a play date on Thursday as she couldn't miss her Clap Handies. There is great chat about what happens each week, she loves having something to report to her older siblings. It's a lovely introduction to socialising with peers, she loves chatting about her friends there. Attending the weekly session has made her really confident about staring Montessori next year. Finally as a parent it's great that the term mirrors the school terms so there is no pressure to get her there when the older kids are at home.' - Ciara Clancy - Marino - Toddlers

We’ve been attending the class in Castleknock and my baby loves it. I have seen a huge improvement in his social skills since. It’s great for babies and mothers alike, motherhood is busy but it can be lonely sometimes. We would definitely recommend it. - Julie Husman - Castleknock

Play labs are great for both the children and the adults. Kids learn new activities and get to bond with children the same age and parents also have the chance to meet up and share experiences over a coffee after the class. Win win for everyone. - Glenda Ryan - Ballsbridge - Herbert Park

Loads of fun for both me as a Mum and my baby. Really liked learning the baby sign language. - Lorna - Marino

Play labs are so good, me and my daughter where super nervous going for our first day and they made us so welcome and we had such a good time at the playlab. Highly recommend them - Shannon Mason - Mount Merrion

My year old absolutely loves the class - his face lights up as soon as we arrive. Aisha is fabulous - so kind, energetic & wonderful with all of the children. - Sarah Byrne - Rathmines

I learned fun games, songs and activities that I was able to play with my son throughout the week, and it's great to know a group of mums in the same area with babies the same age. - Nora McFarland -
