A warm welcome

At Under The Son Early Childhood Education we are strong believers in the need to empower and up skill people, who in turn can help others. By helping a mother, a father or a teacher, you empower their children, and you empower their community. 

Our practical, informative and inspirational mandatory and vocational workshops are for parents, grandparents, helpers, cooks, aupairs and teachers. We have NPOs, preschools, primary and high school staff, soup kitchens, restaurant staff etc. attend our workshops.

Our webinars have been compiled by various specialists in the industry. Our Under The Son team of expert trainers are two doctors (neonatal nurses with PhDs), a fire fighter (with 36 years service), a primary school bridging teacher, and a special needs teacher and founder of 4 preschools (In England and South Africa).

Our prices are affordable. Expensive training most often excludes the very people that need it most, and, Under the Son, being an all-inclusive and community driven business, aims to ensure that everyone who needs the training can do the training. Our fee includes the workshop, a certificate and training material. With the advent of Covid-19 our face-to-face training went (mostly) online.
