    Sorry not much help but certainly looks an interesting course and for free too! If I wasn't 5 weeks away from my due date when the course begins I would definitely sign up, not much free training available these days so need to make the most of it.

    Hi

    I have done another course with them and signed up for this one too. Looks interesting. Perhaps we could pm and chat about the course to help each other??

    Yep I've signed up and had an email from them in the week reminding me about the start date. Looking forward to it and I'm definitely up for chatting about it :-)

    Thanks for this - I had no idea the site existed.
    Have signed up to the play course and will probably do more afterwards

    I've signed up too! Not sure if I'm over stretching myself as I'm currently signed up to this, basic sign language and food hygiene! Ah well only time will tell eh? xx

    I've signed up. Anything if it's free. Might get me wanting to learn new things again. The thought of having to fork out loads of money has always put me off.

    Seems like there's going to be plenty of childminders doing it, I'm looking forward to it.

    If you want a certificate or "statment of participation" it will cost you £24

    Yes I noticed that and I may decide to purchase the certificate. Considering what some courses, conferences etc cost then I think it's okay
