At your request, we have extended the deadline to Friday 23rd February latest.

The venue is booked, a highly sought after AMI 0-3 trainer secured, all that’s left to do is for you to submit your fully completed applications NOW!

Here’s what previous 0-3 students have said of the course,
Thinking about studying for the 0-3 course could be a daunting experience, especially when you may need to be away from your friends and family for periods of time. Yet I made the decision and let me tell you, this course has completely changed my life! “ 
“There is almost nothing similar in a 0-3 environment when comparing it to a 3-6 environment. Every piece of material is used in a totally different way with the children in the first half of this plane of development. Nothing in my 3-6 training helped prepare me… I can say, hand on heart, there is no possible way I could run a successful 0-3 class with my 3-6 training such is the difference. What I did get from the training was a deep and profound understanding of a totally different child
