Working with Children Level 2 is designed to be an introduction to studies in early childhood education and general education in child care environments, as well as developing the parenting skills of learners

The course focuses on developing skills and knowledge to understand the educational, social, and ethical framework of the child care environment as a workplace. Skills to interact with children in that environment, plan and organise age-appropriate activities, actively promote positive, stimulating, safe environments and guide behaviour are developed. Learners develop a practical understanding of duty of care and legal implications of children in their care and the legislative requirements of child care provision. Learners are encouraged to be responsible as well as responsive and sensitive to the needs of children and others, to be effective caregivers, based on acquired skills, values and knowledge and to be proactive in the safety and welfare of children.
