Previous study in a lower school - Caring for Children / Child Development course is desirable but not essential.
The Certificate II in Community Services will have a focus on Child Care. The students will develop an understanding of working within the child care industry, organisations and related services. Students will study the importance of play, early education and the need for good nutrition for growth and physical development. This will be gained by completing a range of interesting practical, written and research activities. Visiting guest speakers and excursions to various venues (such as child care facilities, kindergartens and community services) will be incorporated into the course. These excursions are compulsory as they are part of the assessment. Students will also complete a Senior First Aid certificate as part of this course.
