Our Childcare courses are rated "Outstanding" say Ofsted
In April 2013 Ofsted said:
"Teaching, learning and assessment in early years and childcare are outstanding",
"Teachers motivate and teach students effectively. As a result, they complete tasks and assignments by the agreed deadlines and receive constructive feedback that helps them to improve quickly."
Whether you are a school leaver or returning to college after a break, heading for university or straight into work, there is a wide range of options available.
Our Childcare courses prepare you for a career working with young children in a nursery or school. You’ll gain real work experience from being on a practical placement throughout the course.

PACEY - the Professional Association for Childcare & Early Years
As a childcare student you will benefit from our links with PACEY, the organisation that both supports and sets the standards for the sector.
If you are a student on a Level 2 or Level 3 Childcare course, we would encourage you to become a member of PACEY because it will give you access to lots of useful sector information and recourses.
Your tutors will tell you all about the membership opportunities and will guide you through the process.
