This study programme is designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to support the care and education of babies and young children in a day nursery or school.
The programme is aimed at learners who are thinking of working in childcare either in a nursery or a school or who are aiming to progress into higher education to complete an early years or primary education degree.
At level 1 you will be in college between 3 and 4 days with organised visits to settings.
The programme will help you to understand your own personal and social development, including how to behave professionally. It is very important that learners are able to manage their own behaviour and follow the college rules, as young children learn how to behave from the people around them, so we must be positive role models when working with children.
