Gain the skills you need to provide quality education to children

If you love working with children and want to learn more about providing quality education and care in a range of environments, this course is for you.

This course covers the fundamentals of childhood development and caring for children.

Through classroom learning and practical placements in early-childhood education and childcare centres, you’ll learn skills focused on supporting children’s education.

The Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care can provide entry level job opportunities in early childhood centres, home based care, or school-based environments, however, many students go on to study higher level courses before gaining employment.

Please note: Chisholm is offering a scholarship to those undertaking the Certificate III and Diploma programs at Chisholm. The scholarship will be allocated against the Diploma course fees.
