A career in early childhood education and care opens up a world of opportunity


"Studying with the C&K College, I got more out of the course than I expected. My trainer, Sarah, was a great support, she was contactable, and if I had trouble understanding she always explained it in a way I understood.

I really liked the opportunities to attend class and having the one-on-one contact with my trainer. I also found that the college staff were a big support with anything that I needed. I would like to thank the college for helping me to complete my diploma."

"I recommend training with C&K College as they are committed to quality and best practice. C&K College Educational Trainers provide students with the knowledge to be successful in their career with children. The depth of knowledge and practice amongst the educational staff is exception.

The learning tasks in the assessment are developed around not only theory, but best practice as found in high quality early childhood services. This develops the skills for success to meet the quality standards and everday best practice in the early childhood sector.

C&K College students can feel confident that they will know what to do when they obtain their positions in the early childhood sector."

"It has been amazing journey for me. Learning all the knowledge that I can take in, bringing it into our centre, giving the children the opportunity to learn and learning from them. My mentors have been really great. I also loved meeting other educators in the same field, exchanging ideas and advice. This really encourages us to empower ourselves, to be strong in why we are here and giving the children the best chance in their earlier years of learning."
