Janine, All Saints Ventures Ltd

I’m very happy with parenta services especially my tutor Charlie help me a lot during my childcare level 2 and level 3 course. I’m more confident and professional at my work now.

Yan Ng, In-do Chinese Little Rainbow Day Nursery

Our company has been using Parenta for the recruitment of apprentices training towards a childcare qualification for some time. Courtney is great from the initial contact with information on the applicant to arranging an interview and following up afterwards and than arranging for the enrolment onto the training!

Playdays Nurseries

We’ve been working with Parenta for over two years now. Excellent training programs for all abilities. Also the 1-2-1 support is great and seamless. Highly recommend Parenta to any nursery manager / owner.

Nikki McReynolds, Nikki’s Nurseries Ltd

I was very happy with how my level 3 went with Parenta. Jeanette was extremely helpful and supported me throughout the course of the year. Jeanette responded to any of my questions quickly and I believe she made it possible for me to complete my course on time.

Jessica Lavender, Folkestone Academy Kindergarten

The support I receive from Parenta is always brilliant, thank you very much.

Fiona, The Arc Stamford

Amie took my call this morning and was extremely helpful & professional in helping me out with my query. Amie talked me through the process whilst I was on the system to make sure I managed to complete the task. Lovely lady and I am extremely happy with the level of service she gave to me.

Kerry, The Beacon Nursery

Good evening, my name is Courtney and I recently completed my level 3 childcare qualification with Parenta and I’m emailing to say a massive “thank you” to Parenta for providing such a great level of service and education. My tutor, Cheryl, was absolutely amazing and I can’t express enough how fantastic she really was. She catered to my needs, not only with my hearing impairment, but I suffered with my mental health, and a few times thought about giving up my passion of working with children and giving up my qualification altogether, but Cheryl didn’t let me. She helped and guided me throughout it all, making time to always answer any queries no matter what time or day and she made sure I succeeded. Because Cheryl didn’t give up, I didn’t, and now I’m a level 3-qualified nursery practitioner and I love my job and because of your company, I proved to myself I can achieve! So again, I just want to say a massive “thank you” to Parenta for teaching me to become a knowledgeable practitioner.

Courtney Johnson

Hello my name is Shevonne I have just completed my level 3 with Parenta. I am partial sighted and struggle with computer work and need a lot of enlargement and readers. I would like to thank Tina on how amazingly I feel I was supported with all of my needs. I felt so confident that I would complete my level 3 with Tina Butler as an Assessor. She taught me to speak up and to overcome my anxiety, become a better leader. She believed in me, pushed me to go further when I struggled, she adapted all my assignments so that they were easier for me to see and complete. I do not think I would have been as confident completing this course without her so, I’d like to say “thank you”!!
