CPR and First Aid This training provides coaching on lifesaving skills. This is personalized training in a group setting that is fun, interactive, low-stress and pleasant for all our au pairs.
Values-based Child Rearing These are mini-sessions on how to train up a child guided by sound biblical principles. God's Word tells us children are a gift, a blessing from Him. Being a responsible adult who helps take care of children is a great responsibility. These sessions help our au pairs see things from a fresh perspective.
Food Hygiene This explores food safety hazards, how they arise, how they can be prevented and controlled. It also looks into why personal hygiene is so important when working with food.
