About the Course

Are you looking to complete some child care training? Courses from The Skills Network are perfect for individuals who wish to study and gain new skills, but who don't wish to do so in a classroom environment. Available via distance learning, this qualification will give you an introductory understanding of childcare through exploring young children's development, the value and importance of play, how to plan a healthy diet and the importance of safeguarding and welfare

Unit 1: Young children's development
