QUALIFICATION TITLE

Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care

QUALIFICATION DESCRIPTION

This qualification reflects the role of educators in early childhood education and care who work in regulated children’s education and care services in Australia. They support children’s wellbeing, and development in the context of an approved learning framework. Educators use a range of well-developed skills and knowledge and must apply discretion and judgment to the application of these when carrying out their work in the context of established policies and procedures. They may work independently or under the guidance of others, though in some contexts that guidance may not be on-site.

 

Early childhood educators work in long day care centres, family day care, pre-schools or kindergartens.

 

Under the Education and Care Services National Law (2011) the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) publishes lists of approved early childhood education and care qualifications and information regarding regulatory requirements here: www.acecqa.gov.au
