5 Reasons you need to study Childcare courses online
Whether you’re an entrepreneur seeking a rewarding new challenge or just someone who loves kids, the notion of starting your own childcare centre can be pretty irresistible.
Perhaps you don’t have the resources for your own business just yet and aspire to make a difference in children’s formative years.
Either way, starting a childcare centre is not an easy job.
Read our article on ‘Benefits of starting a career in Childcare’ to find out why a career in childcare is a great idea.
What qualifications do you need to be a Childcare Worker?
For a successful childcare career, most importantly, you will need to have the right qualifications in childcare.
Obtaining the right childcare qualifications is the first step you will need to take to move forward in your career in caring for children. You can study childcare courses from home without compromising on your usual commitments.
The internet, while considered to have a questionable impact on our lives, has its good points, and one of those is online study.
Study an online CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care or complete a CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care to prepare for a position as a Childcare Assistant or even a Childcare Centre Director respectively.
Why study childcare online?
A career in childcare can be very rewarding. We have compiled 5 very exciting and best of all, highly manageable facts about our online childcare courses that you need to know as you consider if studying childcare courses from home is the right option for you.
One: Study what you want when you want
That’s the beauty of a Foundation Education course; you’re not committed to an immovable schedule of lectures. With an accredited certificate or diploma in childcare, you study module by module at your own pace from the comfort of your own home.
In other words, you could literally wait until the kids are asleep and you’re tucked up in bed with the laptop on your lap before starting your study. Or you could turn all that idle commute time into valuable study time.
Two: Choose your completion date
No lecturers telling you when and where; you choose your course start date and, best of all, you also choose your completion date to give you ample time and no panicked rush.
Three: No hefty textbook costs
Remember the days when university fees were just the start of the financial burden? You then had to find the money to pay for a whole bunch of course-prescribed textbooks, an expensive exercise at the best of times.
With our online courses, there’s none of that. All course materials and videos are online and just a mouse click away; a massive saving and a greatly convenient alternative.
Four: Nationally recognised courses
At Foundation Education, we offer both the CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care and the CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care. While the Diploma is a more advanced qualification, a Certificate will still get you up and running in a recognised childcare career. Our courses are nationally recognised, a huge plus in itself, making you job ready, after you complete your course.
Five: Opening the door to a huge range of childcare careers
What could be better than caring for your own kids at home while you take care of your childcare career? Our Certificate courses equip you to start your career as a Childcare, Preschool or an Education Assistant, and an Outside School Hours Aide.
With our Diploma courses, you could choose from careers like an Educational Leader, a Group Leader or a Childcare Centre or an Assistant Director.
