Early childhood education and care

YWCA Canberra’s Registered Training Organisation offers two qualifications in early childhood education and care:

These qualifications are available to fee-for-service or self-funded students, or may be delivered as part of a traineeship.  These qualifications are ideal for people who want to work in the education and care sector across Australia.  Students will learn about professional development, children’s health and safety, basic child development and programming, welfare, wellbeing and more.

The training teaches you to be aware of the developmental needs of children and introduces you to your roles and responsibilities in an early childhood education and care setting. You will be provided with opportunities to apply theories of child development in the workplace, and gain experience in interacting with children, families and your fellow workers through practical placements.
