‘BCP is foundational to a child's learning. It is the building blocks on which all other concepts are built. A concept needs to be fully understood by a child before a new concept can be taught. We often rush children's learning due to time constraints which is not correct.’ (KIDZPOSITIVE, Occupational Therapist, 2011)

Teacher Feedback

‘The trainer was very good and it was refreshing to be part of a workshop that can actually make a difference in the lives and minds of learners.’ (Metro North, 2010)

Teacher Feedback

Ek waardeer alles wat Dr Louis ons geleer het. Daar is soveel dinge wat ek nie geweet het nie, bv. hoe om ons kinders te help leer. You are a star, thank you for your time.
