About the Child Care Courses Online from Australian College

The child care industry has come a long way over the past few decades. With increasing demands and higher standards for child care facilities, there is a growing demand for dedicated professionals with the right education, skills and qualifications to not only look after children, but help guide their development during those crucial formative years. If you like babies and children and have been considering a career in this competitive yet rewarding industry, our childcare courses online can help get you there.

These child care courses online lead to nationally recognised certificate and diploma qualifications. The legal minimum qualification requirement varies from state to state and role to role; for example, most states require a room supervisor or a senior manager to have a minimum of a Diploma. Most courses include practical experience opportunities, so you’ll be able to practice what you’ve learned.

Interested in working with older children? We also offer a select few online education courses, including the Certificate III in Education Support. This course is designed to prepare you for work in a classroom setting, as a teacher’s aide, educational assistant, or other similar role. Find out more by clicking on the course name above.
