What our students say
"My course in Child Day Care has been really good. All the coursework was very clear and easy to understand. I've always wanted to work with children, but couldn't afford the time away from work - so I found the correspondence course was ideal." Eloise Garwood, ICS Graduate, Tavistock
Although you will need to check in your areas for specific qualifications required to work with children, this ICS course will teach you the basics of child care and demonstrate to an employer your commitment to working with children.
