Progress your career in early childhood education and care with advanced skills in planning and management
When you complete the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care, you’ll be able to work at a senior level in a variety of children’s service environments. This course is based on the National Quality Framework and Early Years Learning Framework and has an emphasis on play-based learning.
Throughout the program, you’ll learn more about best practice and quality assurance, planning for children with additional needs, networking, effective communication, family partnerships, childhood development (aesthetic, creative, physical), music programs, and health and safety.

Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.
Participants will be required to engage with theoretical components of the course online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available.
Practical skills training and assessment will be carried out in scheduled small classes to meet social distancing requirements. Practical Placement is a required component of this course and will be scheduled as soon as possible with an appropriate placement host. Given the current environment, however, this may take longer than normal and therefore, expected completion dates for the course may need to be extended to take account of deferred placement.
