A Distance Learning Course of 10 Lessons
Helping children learn and gain new skills can be extremely rewarding coupled with this, Child Day Care workers often improve their own communication and personal skills by working with children. What is more, the Child Day Care work is never routine, with new activities and challenges everyday.
The Child Day Care Diploma Course has been specifically designed to assist you in either setting up your own Child Day Care centre or gaining employment in an existing centre. The course covers many of the fundamental concepts that need to be understood before one can embark on this career.
With the major shift in Child Day Care from unpaid care by relatives to paid Child Day Care carried out in dedicated centres, obtaining affordable, quality child day care is a major concern for many parents. That is why the Child Day Care Diploma is the ideal course to get you started in your new career as a Child Day Care centre owner/assistant.
