MONASH Training and Professional Development have teamed up with some of our local Childcare Centres to create a course structure that will give you the best skills possible to start or further your career in the Childhood Education sector.
The Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care addresses the skills and knowledge required to provide care for groups and individual children.
This course reflects the role of early childhood educators who are responsible for designing and implementing curriculum in early childhood education and care services. In doing so they work to implement an approved learning framework within the requirements of the Education and Care Services national Regulations and the National Quality Standard. They may have responsibility for supervision of volunteers or other staff in a range of childcare facilities as a Early Childhood Educator.
This qualification qualifies you to work in out of school hours care.
Students will gain experience throughout the course including a work placement component of a minimum 320 hours in a licensed and registered early childhood service.
