"These mini-courses are a fantastic way to refresh your knowledge, improve your practices and reflect on your own pedagogy. They dont dominate your time, nor expect much in return, just a reply on your perspective of what you've learnt. I always look for these courses, they are an advantage to all early childhood educators."
