Get qualified in the rewarding field of Early Childhood while completing your secondary school studies

This course offers the minimum qualification required for people who are seeking to work in early childhood education and care settings with babies and young children. It prepares students for centre-based, out-of-school hours, family daycare, and nanny roles.

Students will gain the skills required to care for children aged up to 12 years of age. Skills learned at this level include knowledge and understanding of child development and how to foster and support the emotional and educational wellbeing of infants and children.

Please note: We have reviewed our delivery strategies for this program and will now be offering full completion of the Certificate III Early Childhood Education and Care over two years of study.
