review on Facebook

Thank-you Deborah Udakis

Thank-you Deborah Udakis for what you offer on your website, it’s very easy to use & easy to download VERY useful tools/information/training packs! 

Because of you I now have training manuals on “prevent Duty” “county lines”  & “FGM” I have updated my parents safeguarding board by using your safeguarding poster, I regularly use your safeguarding quiz and peer on peer observations.

During one of our previous staff training days we completed “MUST & SHOULD” & explored your explained information on the 3 “ I’s “ 

I often look on your website! 

Thank you so much to what you have to offer, mostly appreciated! X


The staff felt so inspired ...

Just wanted to say thank you very much for the training you gave on Monday. You are full of so much useful knowledge.

The staff felt so inspired after the training and have already started adapting their ways of working. it is great to see the staff so full of enthusiasm and confidence regarding the new framework. You really did deliver the new framework and what is expected in a way that the staff felt empowered so thank you very much. The staff are not stop talking about the informative information that you constantly provide on your website and Facebook page.  
I don’t know how you get time to breathe!

Thanks again, we will definitely be using you again. I am already onto my line manager regarding the leadership and management training.
It’s just a shame that you never got to see our nursery. This is something we would love to invite you to do in the future.
