The Early Childcare Assistant Diploma program at the National Academy of Health and Business works hard to train students for the increasingly crucial world of early childcare. Because more parents are choosing to work, instead of stay at home, there is an increase in demand for skilled and qualified early childcare assistants. Early childcare assistants play an essential role in the development of children and enjoy a fulfilling and emotional rewarding career.
In the Early Childcare Assistant diploma program, you’ll develop the necessary skills and techniques to be an empathetic, nurturing childcare assistant. With a focus on theoretical classroom learning paired with real-life, “hands-on” training, you’ll graduate with knowledge and confidence you need to step out of school and right into a rewarding career.
Graduates of the Early Childcare Assistant diploma program have found employment in daycare centres, nursery schools, pre-schools, kindergartens, government and non-profit organizations and private homes. In addition, the National Academy of Health and Business is one of the few colleges that will help you find your placement following your in-class training. In this job placement, you will have the opportunity to apply your theoretical skills in a professional, real-world setting, which will help develop confidence and valuable practical experience.
