Certificate III Information

As of 2014, all childhood educators that work within the childcare sector must obtain a certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care. It is the best place to start caring for infants and toddlers as well as grasping general concepts of understanding, supporting and encouraging young mind development. The course is very fulfilling and educational with an uplifting classroom culture.

This course has online components and face-to-face learning. We believe this form of education is the most effective and will ultimately have the best results for the students at completion. A certificate III qualification will allow you to work as a nanny, family day carer or childcare assistant. You will be required to do two days per week theory within our campus and one day per week or 8 hours of practical experience within a childcare centre.
