This course encourages an understanding of the knowledge and the skills needed to care for young children. You will study the different ways in which children learn and develop, how they use all their senses in order to learn about the world in which they live.
This course is designed to stimulate interest and encourage the learners’ understanding of the skills and knowledge needed to care for a child.
This course will introduce you to the idea that children are learning all the time. They learn at home, in a childcare setting, indoors and outdoors and when they explore their local community. You will explore learning opportunities for children in all of those places.
The programme also includes studying maths and English towards GCSE grade A*-C (new grading system: 9-4) if you do not already have these grades.
