Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care (CHC30113)

The Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care addresses the skills and knowledge required to provide care for individuals and groups of children, and to plan activities facilitating their leisure and play, enabling them to achieve their developmental outcomes.

This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of early childhood education settings who work within the requirements of the Education and Care Services National Regulations and the National Quality Standard. Students will learn to support the implementation of an approved learning framework, and support children’s wellbeing, learning and development. Depending on the setting, educators may work under direct supervision or autonomously in a range of child care facilities such as full day care centres, occasional care facilities, crèches and early learning centres as an Early Childhood Educator.

Students will gain the benefit of experience throughout their course with an integrated work placement component (a minimum of 120 hours) that:

  • Strengthens experience of the workplace to support future expectations of performance in the workforce
  • Develops practical skills and the application of knowledge within the workplace to promote stronger embedding of learning
  • Provides exposure to real workplace situations and circumstances which cannot be replicated in a learning environment or through simulation
