“You really cannot describe the passion and love that the trainers at First Door have. The well-constructed workshops provide students with specific up-to-date skills, knowledge and inspiration necessary for successful practice and employment in the child care industry." 

Behaviour Rethink eLearning course endorsement

I wanted to share my excitement about the unique opportunity provided by your Behavior Rethink eLearning course. While this immersive program empowers educators to offer their best, aligned with The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, the multi-faceted ways in which First Door offers this learning will clearly enable each child to flourish—as well as every educator.

The ways in which pedagogy and practice are woven throughout these exceptionally thoughtful videos, visuals and reproducibles enables educators and their teams to weave best practices into every moment of respectful relationship with the children in their care and with each other.

I am grateful to have experienced this inspiring course and would highly recommend it to all educational professionals across Australia, in every country, and in the U.S., in every state."
