Lead kids to their fu­ture

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LEARNING - Janita Singh

LOOK­ING af­ter young­sters these days is not sim­ply child’s play.

Child­care pro­fes­sion­als need to be trained in ar­eas in­clud­ing health and safety, ethics, and above all pos­i­tive ways to shape a child’s early, for­ma­tive years.

Open Col­leges’ Di­ploma of Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion and Care pro­vides the right plat­form for those who are look­ing to forge a ca­reer in this field.

With this qual­i­fi­ca­tion, you can work as a child de­vel­op­ment worker, chil­dren’s ser­vice man­ager, area man­ager, early child­hood ed­u­ca­tor and fam­ily day care co-or­di­na­tor.

Stu­dents are taught how to look af­ter chil­dren, ways to cre­ate a safe work­ing en­vi­ron­ment and to pro­mote in­clu­sive poli­cies and co­or­di­nate the work­place.

A work place­ment un­der the guid­ance of a child­care pro­fes­sional also gives stu­dents real-life train­ing to make sure they are ready for em­ploy­ment. De­tails go to: open­col­leges.edu.au

Child­care can be a re­ward­ing ca­reer.
