Our childcare and early years courses explore the concept of child development, considering communication, play, stages of development, first aid, and health and safety, and develop skills to work with children through placement settings.

With work placements forming a huge part of our early years programmes you can be reassured to know that this is all taken care of by us. We arrange the placements with a variety of local employers so you can learn the correct mix of practical skills to compliment the knowledge and skills learnt.

The teaching staff have a wealth of knowledge within the working sector and along with continued excellent links can share their theoretical and practical knowledge.

There is a lot of hard work involved but the courses also offer the opportunities to learn vital practical skills which are necessary for working with children.
