Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care


About this course

The Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and care is a practically oriented course, which enables graduates to work in the childcare industry.  This qualification covers workers who use organizational policies, procedures and individual children’s profiles to plan activities and provide care to children, facilitating their leisure and play and enabling them to achieve their developmental outcomes.

Depending on the setting, workers may work under direct supervision or autonomously and may have the limited supervisory responsibilities of volunteers.  Graduates of Certificate III have the option to continue into the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care.

  • This training has been very valuable for me because it has given me more knowledge of how to work in Children's Services and has also helped me to improve my English. The trainer's delivery style suited me. Classes were a lot of fun, no stress and easy to understand.

  • It was fun doing our training. I learnt so much that I was not aware of. I really loved completing the course and apply the knowledge I learned to daily work with children. The trainer was amazing, full of energy, very positive, always very helpful and caring, and easy to understand.
