Happy Child Nursery

Josie Lauren Hagger

I completed my Level 3 children and young people’s workforce with Paragon. I couldn’t have asked for a better tutor! She was always there to help (no matter what time of day!), quick response with helpful advice to texts, emails or calls and came to see me at my nursery once a month without fail! I wouldn’t have been able to get through it without her.
