9/ ‘In a structured, practical and fun way, Little Tradies has taught my children real-life trade skills, as well as improved listening, focus and attention behaviours. The level of support provided by the instructors is awesome – they carefully and attentively guide the kids, step by step, through planning, measuring, cutting, assembling and finishing their individual projects, some of which take several weeks to complete. Each child excitedly shows off the finished result, being so proud of what they’ve been able to build themselves.’
