Childcare and Early Years

A career in early years and childcare is immensely rewarding with qualified, experienced practitioners being highly sought after by employers.

There’s great opportunities for progression too, with many of our students taking on Apprenticeships or going to university.

STUDY Childcare and Early Years

In class, you’ll learn the theory of childcare and Early Years education with modules in child development, play and learning, and preparing for school readiness. Think you might like to work abroad? You’ll look at international perspectives on childcare to give you a real advantage.


Work placements throughout your course will give you valuable experience of different childcare settings such as nurseries, schools and crèches. Our assessors will come out to your placement and observe you working with children of different ages, to see how your skills are developing.

Work Experience

Whilst receiving extensive teaching and theoretical learnings, these courses give you the opportunity to go and get some real-life work experience, which will prepare you for life after college.

Out of Class Learning

You will also have the opportunity to spend some time out of the classroom, where you can explore other learning environments such as the beach, forest and parks.

Regular Teaching Time

You will benefit from small group sizes, ensuring you get the required support for your success. You will receive regular supervision, with a fully qualified and experienced tutor.
