A day filled with imagination, enthusiasm and so much love

Working in early childhood provides an opportunity to make a real difference. As an educator you encourage, nurture and support positive outcomes in children’s health, wellbeing and learning.

Nothing beats the feeling of knowing that what you do each day is having a real impact on a child, not just in that moment – but for the rest of their life.

 

A booming industry

Advances in technology are changing the workplace, putting a greater emphasis on early years learning as we prepare today’s children for tomorrow’s jobs.

With this in mind, the need for quality early childhood Educators and Teachers to help lay these important foundations, is greater than ever.

There is increasing recognition that the work of caring for and educating young children is complex and requires ongoing qualifications and professional development – placing greater value on the early education profession, making it an attractive career choice for young people and creating a new generation of early years Educators.

More than a job, a rewarding career

Children develop rapidly in their early years, with their experiences in this time having a major impact on their future life outcomes. Being able to teach a young mind how to achieve a first and watching their little faces as they make those achievements can be a real incentive to get out of bed in the morning – making careers in early years learning amongst the most rewarding.

This coupled with the fact that the demand for quality early childhood professionals is growing, makes it a highly attractive path to follow.
