“The two training evenings gave us strong support for what we have been doing here at Jouppi daycare for years. It was important to get familiar with the research that supports the working methods. New topics and issues came up during the training evenings and also lots of new ideas. The Language Shower method increases the significance of children’s language development.
Training evenings rating 5/5. Nice and functional training sessions”
