Child Day Care

About the Level 3 Child Day Care Certificate

Caring for children in their early years is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a parent. With a busy lifestyle more and more parents need quality, trustworthy child care. At the same time, parents who would like flexible employment as well as the option of being next to their children in the early stages of childhood, would find this to be the right career option.

This home study course not only enables you to start working with children straight away but allows you to explore your entrepreneurial side and work for yourself as well. Many parents found this course not only a way to spend time next to their little ones, but also a way to bring in a steady income.

Who should study this course?

Anyone who wants to be around happy little people all day should consider this course. There is no need for extra qualifications, or previous experience. This distance learning course has everything you need to take you from newbie to child day care professional. You could be a mother looking for extra income while caring for your young family, or you could be a community support worker wanting to add child care services to their CV.

There is no need for previous experience or qualifications. Throughout the course you will find everything you need to know in order to kickstart your career in child care, or even setup your own business.

What happens after the course?

Successful completion of this course means you will be equipped with key technical skills such as understanding the OFSTED guidelines, designing programmes and activities appropriate to children’s needs, legal matters in the daily administration of a day care centre, or how to deal with quality assurance and parental inspections. You will also explore the soft skills that will make you a successful child care provider: caring and nurturing, excellent communication skills and the ability to listen, staying calm in stressful situations, creativity, problem-solving ability.

Upon completion of this course you are eligible to join the Qualifications Register as well as the Affiliation of Ethical & Professional Therapists. You may find you would like to complement this course with further studies in early childhood.
