Childcare - Entry Level 3 CACHE Caring for Children at Wakefield College
Caring for children from young babies to older children can be a very rewarding job. You need to be a kind and understanding person who has lots of patience and can stay calm around other people. This course gives you the chance to learn all about caring for children, including how to keep them safe and healthy and helping them to learn about the world around them.
The course also helps you to learn about your own personal and social development, including how to manage your own behaviour. This is a very important part of the course because children learn how to behave from the people around them, so we must be good role models for them.
After you have successfully completed this course you may be able to go onto a level 1 course in Early Years
