Course description

This course explains the benefits, importance, and value of Childcare and Early Learning. The socialisation & developmental opportunities that it can provide to children are given focus, as are the difficulties faced by parents using day care.

Caring for someone elses child is a big responsibility and so comes with many guidelines to follow. The Childcare and Early Learning Diploma Course explains Health & Safety directives, Care Plans, Individual Educational Programmes (IEPs), Medical Needs, Safeguarding responsibilities and other associated issues.

You will learn how children develop physically from birth onwards and how this development affects learning. The course also explains the ways in which health, environment, and genetic factors can affect physical development.

Cognitive Development is another major area that the Childcare and Early Learning Diploma Course discusses. You will discover how language is acquired and developed during the early years, and the difficulties that this can present to some children. Youll also learn the stages of cognitive development and the effect development has on moral reasoning, how socialisation can improve emotional development and how antisocial behaviour can occur. The age-old nature/nurture debate is also highlighted, including several theories researched through observations and evidence offered by Twin Studies.

The course covers four basic theories about how children learn and the strategies that can be implemented to cater for different learning styles. The Early Years Curriculum is explained, as is Cross Curricular Planning and theme planning, and how to plan the resources you will need to provide certain activities.

To ensure you can offer positive learning experiences to children with physical or learning difficulties, the Childcare and Early Learning Diploma Course provides knowledge of the types of difficulties you may encounter. It then goes on to explain the ways you can support children with specific learning needs. You will also be shown how to cope with challenging behaviours and learn the importance of play in a childcare/early learning environment.

This course explains the importance of communication skills, as along with working with the children in your care, you also need to be able to work effectively with their parents, carers, your colleagues, and any other professionals that are part of the childrens lives. You will learn about different methods of communication, and when each is appropriate. All aspects of confidentiality and the importance of understanding your role and responsibilities are also covered.

The Childcare and Early Learning Diploma Course outlines the options you have when pursuing a career working with Young Children. It explores the roles of a Childminder, Nursery Nurse, Teaching Assistant, and Nursery/Early Years Teacher – outlining the responsibilities of each, the skills, qualities, and qualifications required, and the career pathways you can follow.
