Childcare Training

Healthcare professionals worldwide agree that it is in the interest of your child’s health to have him cared for in his own home environment for the first year. The Pikanini Madam & Eve course will equip your domestic worker to care for your Pikanini at home, leaving you with peace of mind to focus on returning back to work.

The training offered by Pikanini will make your domestic worker more confident and efficient in caring for your baby. Literacy is not a prerequisite as the manual is well illustrated and practical applications are done throughout the workshop to maximize her learning opportunity. The course is presented in your own home-environment with practical demonstrations using your own equipment.
