Other courses
“Over the past ten years I have been working with children and have many fond and delightful memories of all children I have cared for. Starting out in the Industry studying to require my Certificate three in Child Care was a great introduction to understanding the milestones and all needs of children from the ages of 1 day old to 5 years old. I’m now in completion of my Diploma and will continue onto a Teaching Degree through correspondence, spending time with children helps me learn about their individual personalities and how to create each day based around their interests helping develop. Using these skills through play whether it be swimming, daily or afternoon outings, arranging new arts and craft ideas, creating games or just simply an afternoon at the park. I am a firm believer of everything a child sees, touches, hears or learns from its peers are essential to the child’s growth and development. With each family I would ensure to set aside some time to be able to talk about the children’s needs and their personal development, how to overcome certain obstacles.”
