Family Service Manager Congleton Children's Centre - "Amanda provided our parents and their children with fabulous workshops at the Children's Centre. Her encouraging approach has sparked interest, opened up ideas for creative exploration, built confidence and self esteem in the parents. Her enthusiasm has given great ideas for parents and children to explore through play at home. It has been a valuable learning experience for all which I would happily recommend to others to share in."

The Museum of Science And Industry In Manchester - “The activities you brought to the museum have been a success in every way…Thank you for your tremendous enthusiasm, creativity and dedication in developing and delivering the events, you have done well over what could have been expected, often it is the small extra touches that make an activity”
