Our Child Care Programme is a 13-week elective and covers topics such as child development, perception challenges, creative activities, age-appropriate literature for different stages of childhood development, child abuse, school readiness, baby care, preparing a balanced meal, and a range of other related topics. You will also be able to complete a certified two-day Level 1 First Aid course before you embark on a work-integrated learning opportunity which will provide you with practical work experience at Educare institutions.
One of the most empowering things about our training is that we teach our students how to use recyclable materials from their environments during creative activities for their learners, making it possible for them to work in under-resourced communities by using easily available materials in their environments. We also hold exhibitions after each programme to showcase the educational materials made by the students.
Many of our qualified students obtain work at crèches, as day care mothers, as child minders or au pairs.
