Franchezca Israel

Words cannot express accurately enough how grateful I am for having Fanny as my trainer during most of my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. The level of her service delivery was above and beyond my expectations, as well as her ethics and the knowledge and skill set she kindly shared with her students, always with a positive attitude, broad smile and gentleness that are her trademark.

Angelica Okawa

Teachers and general staff are always willing to attend our needs, tutoring, questions or even basic documents from reception. The campus is organised and clean. Library, learning materials and even the kitchen are always available for student’s use. I feel comfortable studying here and supported by my teachers. Having chosen to study Childcare at Charlton Brown has being a great decision. Thank you Fanny and Fei for your constant support both in theory assessments!
