The Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care covers educators in children's services (early childhood) who are responsible for planning, implementing and managing programs in early childhood services, in accordance with licensing, accreditation and duty of care requirements. At this level educators have responsibility for supervision of other staff and volunteers. In most states it is the highest qualification required at director or service manager level for children's service centre based care and education.

This diploma will provide you with the skills and knowledge to lead a team in an Education and Care Service, provide care and meet the social, emotional, physical and educational needs of infants and young children in various care settings. You will learn about ethical work practices and legal requirements of the industry. You'll also gain advanced skills in care routines, working with families, observing and recording children's behaviour, working with culturally diverse clients and managing safety in the workplace. You will work closely with children from different backgrounds and cultures and provide care and support for them in various child care situations.

As part of this qualification you will undertake ongoing work placement where you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned.

Students are required to obtain a Working with Children Check before attending work placement.
