Why Child Care?

There are a number of reasons you should consider Child Care. For one, if you absolutely adore little ones then this job will be highly rewarding. There is a huge demand for child care professionals who know how to properly care for children. This role is perfect for those who consider themselves responsible human beings. After all, your main duty will be to provide a safe space for little ones to play, grow and learn while their parents or guardians are away.


What Jobs can I get With Child Care Courses?

There is a common misconception that you have limited career options when you consider entering this field. There are multiple opportunities for you to earn a handsome living doing what you love. With Child Care Courses you may also consider your options abroad or open your business. Here’s what you can do with our Child Care Courses:

Au Pair

This career is quite popular among young adults and they are often not sure how to get their foot in the door. Well, Child Care Courses are a start. Those entering this field are required to have child care experience, and it’s hard to get experience without some sort of qualification. As an Au Pair your duties will include picking up the kids from school, helping them with homework, and more.

Creche Teacher

This is a popular choice among students who have Child Care qualifications. There will always be a demand for skilled and loving Creche Teachers to take care of little ones. Your daily duties will include leading activities from the lesson plans you’ve created, introducing fun and interactive games, and making sure they get proper nutrition. With enough experience, you may even become a creche manager or open your own daycare service.


Do you want to give your undivided attention to one special little child? Why not become a nanny? Nannies often care for one child at a time, and provide a safe space for them while their parents are away. As a Nanny, you will be responsible for the safety and well-being of the child or children in your care. You will also have to introduce stimulating activities to promote growth.

Child Care Worker Characteristics

Not everyone is equipped to take on this responsibility. But if you are passionate about child care or children, you can develop or work on the traits needed for this job. Child Care workers need to be:

  • Patient
  • Nurturing
  • Physically fit
  • Responsible
  • Culturally aware
  • Great communicators
