Course Description

Accredited by ABC Awards, our Child Care Diploma has been designed with the intention of strengthening and developing your knowledge, whilst aiming to improve your understanding of childcare practices. This is particularly beneficial to anyone hoping to establish their own business and provide independent childcare services, as it can offer parents lasting reassurance in your capabilities.

During this course, you will be exposed to topics on:

•    Introduction to childcare practice, childcare and child development for 0-16 year olds
•    Childcare practitioner and planning (enabling you to tailor your service to match each individual child’s needs)

Similarly, our Diploma will walk you through what is needed to: meet the requirements for basic training and become a registered childminder (including the registration/application process), but most importantly, will support you as you undertake this professional development.

Course Structure

Our goal is to make your career aspirations easier, so not only can you access our Child Care Diploma - online or by paper - and complete it at your own pace; for one fixed price, our course fee covers registration, certificates and the support of a qualified tutor who will assist you as you explore the 5 key modules contained within this course.

Our modules include:

•    Module 1 – Focusing on children aged 0-8 years, this module examines the key features of child development and their developmental needs, inclusive of individual and special needs.
•    Module 2 - Explores how you can meet children’s physical needs, inclusive of health and safety concerns (e.g. hygiene, behaviour, nutrition and sleep).
•    Module 3 – during this unit you will be taught the benefits of ‘learning through play’ and how it can impact on child development (observation and planning).
•    Module 4 – discusses safeguarding and promoting child welfare including spotting signs of child abuse and child protection procedures.
•    Module 5 – explains the expectations and legal responsibilities of childminders (OFSTED requirements and working in partnership with parents and other professionals).

Even with no prior experience or qualifications in this field, you can register your interest and witness the instant improvement this rewarding home study course can have on your personal and professional life.

Worried about parenthood? Or don’t know where to start in safeguarding and ensuring the educational development of your child? Each of these modules can prepare you for the demands of parenting and keep your child safe, happy and fulfilled.

Alternatively, want to become your own boss and launch a childminding service? This Diploma can prepare you for the legal responsibilities and expectations of prospective parents.

    Will do few more courses

    I am very happy and glad that I have completed my course. My tutor, Sarah, has really helped me with my coursework. My previous tutor, Susan Barret, didn't explain to me properly of what I need to do. For Unit 1 questions I had to re-submit my work 10 times but still Susan was complaining. Due to this I got really stressed out; but when Sarah became my tutor I was stress free and I felt relieved. The first thing she did was that she arranged a phone call and the same question I re-submitted 10 times she explained to me in two minutes. Sarah is very intelligent and she know how to teach students.
    If Sarah's my tutor in future I will do few more courses. Thanks to all the NCC staff and especially Sarah.

    Dear Reqia Ayub
    We know that both students and tutors work in different ways, and in this case your assigned tutor wasn't the best fit for you. Due to your concerns so we decided to bring in another tutor which obviously worked out well for you! Thanks for the great feedback - we're really happy we could resolve this for you Reqia.
