Playing your part in children’s early years

Victorian families will be able to access funded three-year-old kindergarten from 2022[1], with the State Government officially recognising the extensive benefits for children. The initiative is expected to create 6000 new jobs in the sector which means that CHC30113 Certificate lll in Early Childhood Education and Care would well be your ticket to be part of this exciting advancement.

If a job in Early Childhood Education and Care could be for you, Naomi Taylor, from Cire Training, gained valuable insights from some of our Children’s Services leadership team about what makes a great early childhood educator.

“The most important thing we look for is passion”, said Executive Manager, Diletta Lanciana, “We strive to work with people who are committed to providing the best opportunities and inspire the best outcomes”.

Melissa Saaghy-Walsh, Service Director, agrees, “Our educators’ eyes light up when they talk about all the amazing things we get to do and see.”

Being part of a child’s first years is a privilege, and establishing confidence and connections with families, and other organisations, is an important aspect. As Melissa explains,

“I love meeting and working with a wide range of children, educators and families. I love the relationships you develop over time.”

As a trusted member of this network, you may be called on to help support children and families if challenges arise; our experienced course trainers will ensure you are well prepared.  In addition to learning how to provide quality care, you will gain the resources and knowledge to respond to a variety of situations.

A day in the life of an educator will certainly keep you on your toes!  As Melissa says, “every day is different, and you’re not quite sure what the day is going to bring”, adding that this is what keeps her energised, after 23 years in the sector. From creating craft masterpieces to promoting health and safety to sharing stories, educators provide experiences to engage children and support their play and learning.

Do you:

  • Have a passion for children, and the exciting developmental stages of their early years?
  • Communicate well with people of all ages and backgrounds?
  • Respect children and their families?
  • Have creative energy to share?

If this sounds like you, then Cire’s Certificate lll in Early Childhood Education and Care sounds like a great fit.
