Little Beans Day Care

We are a newly formed company but have a great deal of experience with childcare and staff undertaking NVQs. We spoke to four different companies about taking on our NVQ training and Aleece was by far the most efficient, polite and informative of all of those that we spoke to, hence why we chose to go with Parenta.

Paul Evans
Perfect Start Day Nurseries

Clearer directions at the beginning of the Initial Assessments on the Link would have been useful to indicate when the Initial Assessment stage had been completed.

I struggled with the above but after a phone call to Francesca, a solution to my problem was provided. I found her to be more than helpful, full of encouragement, never to busy to give her time and on my completion of the Initial Assessments, her praise was very much appreciated and made me positive for the path ahead.

Janis Glide
Redwood Kids Club

Angela has been a great assessor, she has been very patient with me and always believed in me.

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!
