Combine your experience with knowledge and skills to provide quality child care.
This is an accelerated program in which you attend classes two full days per week and work at your centre the other three days. Your practicum is completed in the workplace.
The program integrates the knowledge and experience of employed childcare assistants in providing quality child care in the community. You will study practice based on:
- A child-centred focus
- Play-based curriculum
- Child development
- Guidance techniques
- Communication skills
- Family relations
Prior to starting the program, you will be invited to attend a program information session. Although optional, it is recommended you attend. You may also be asked to participate in an individual interview.
Upon successful completion of the program you will be able to competently plan learning experiences that stimulate the intellectual, physical, emotional and social development of young children.
