Child Day Care

My Distance Learning College


Helping children learn and gain new skills can be extremely rewarding coupled with this, Child Day Care workers often improve their own communication and personal skills by working with children. What is more, the Child Day Care work is never routine, with new activities and challenges everyday.

The Child Day Care Diploma Course has been specifically designed to assist you in either setting up your own Child Day Care centre or gaining employment in an existing centre. The course covers many of the fundamental concepts that need to be understood before one can embark on this career.

With the major shift in Child Day Care from unpaid care by relatives to paid Child Day Care carried out in dedicated centres, obtaining affordable, quality child day care is a major concern for many parents. That is why the Child Day Care Diploma is the ideal course to get you started in your new career as a Child Day Care centre owner/assistant.

This course covers topics such as:

  • The Rights & Needs of Children
  • Minimum Standards of Early Development
  • OFSTED Guidelines
  • Administrative Matters
  • Programs and Activities
  • Health Care
  • Nutrition
  • Quality Assurance
  • Baby Sitting Services
  • Parental Inspections


On completion of your course, you will receive two qualifications:

SET Level 3 Child Day Care Award

This Course leads to an ASET Level 3 Award Certificate for successful learners. That means that it is independently accredited at a level of learning equivalent to level 3 on the National Qualifications Framework (NFQ) for England, Wales and Northern Ireland (in which case GCSE's are at levels 1 and 2 and A Levels are at level 3).

The Award has been designed by a learning provider to meet specific learners' or employers' requirements and as such is not listed as a qualification on NQF. While the duration, content or assessment may vary from similar national qualifications, in accrediting the programme at level 3, ASET attests that its learning outcomes are at an equivalent level to a level 3 national qualification.


After each lesson there will be a question paper, which needs to be completed and submitted to your personal tutor for marking. This method of continual assessment ensures that your personal tutor can consistently monitor your progress and provide you with assistance throughout the duration of the course.
