"Claire was an excellent presenter and facilitator. She was knowledgeable, warm and very approachable. We as a team are pretty reflective and like to talk things through, I feel like Claire embraced and encouraged that so the workshop and visit flowed and felt really natural."

[Claire's visit] gave us a new perspective in ways of looking at children's behaviour and how it relates with the filling of the Cups and how it can be managed easily. We have mentioned about this program to our sister centres and have also spoken about it during our Directors meetings."
