Early Learning - The Academy

Welcome to the ‘Thriving Futures – Training Academy’.  We are very excited to be part of your introduction to the Early Childhood Education world.  It is a very exciting and rewarding world where you can enjoy watching children grow in body and mind, and celebrate their achievements with them, their families and your co-workers.  

In this course we will provide you with some beginning knowledge to assist you to develop your understanding of what it means to be an early childhood educator, some of the rules and regulations you need to be aware of and get you started with some practical experiences.  The practical component of this course will help you connect the information we provide to the early childhood setting. 

This free course is a taster for beginning a career in early years’ education.  It is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the field before you begin studies in the area.  Although you will not achieve an accreditation at the end of this course, you will be well prepared to begin further study and have a head start for the successful completion of a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care or the Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care
