"Peaceful Learning has been everything I needed after moving to London. I have such a passion for early childhood development but after moving to London, never felt my passion was reflected in one specific place. Peaceful Learning exemplifies what it means to value the whole family, from what is best for the parents to the perfect parenting style for the children. I'm thanking my lucky stars to have stumbled across Peaceful Learning and hope continue working with wholesome, supportive people." -Jillian Siegal, UK



"Thanks again for your support and understanding during the trial process. I really appreciate being able to reach out to you and receive a meaningful response :) Many agencies don’t offer that, and it’s actually really important. We (nannies) all still have a genuine and legitimate need to feel “heard and understood” when things are hard." -Danielle Bujnak, USA
