What our Clients say about us…
“At the end of each year Offaly County Childcare Committee organises a seminar for early years practitioners on a quality theme. Avril presented to the ELC practitioners in November 2019 and the feedback was exceptional, there was a hunger for more follow up. Unfortunately, with Covid it was not possible to organise an in-person seminar in 2020 and 2021, however Avril worked with Offaly CCC to offer Meantoir online CPD training to ELC practitioners in Offaly.
New courses were added in 2021 and the feedback from practitioners again has been excellent. The range of courses supports services with any topic. Working with Avril and Conall has been a pleasure. There was nothing they wouldn’t do to ensure the participants were supported. Avril’s passion for the early years shines in the work she does and I would highly recommend MOSAIC Digital Solutions as a training and mentoring agency.”Áine BrummelManager, Offaly County Childcare Committee
