early childhood education settings who work within the requirements of the Education and Care Services National Regulations and the National Quality Standard.
They support the implementation of an approved learning framework and support children’s well-being, learning, and development. Depending on the setting, educators may work under direct supervision or autonomously.
Throughout the course, you will learn about the responsibilities involved in engaging with groups of children and individuals, how children grow and develop, and observing children learn about their interests and needs.
