Unlike other online childcare courses, this qualification will give your
employees an introductory understanding of childcare through exploring young
children’s development, the value and importance of play, how to plan a healthy
diet and the importance of safeguarding and welfare.
Unit 1: Young children’s development
This unit will explore the stages of development of young children from birth to three years. Alongside this, your employees will learn about how positive environments support the development of young children.
Unit 2: The value of play to young children
Within this unit, your employees will learn about the necessity of play to young children’s development, as well as demonstrating different play activities suitable for young children from birth to five years old.
Unit 3: Importance of play for early learning
This unit will take your employees through the vital importance of creativity and imagination in the development of a child. They will learn about how to organise a cooking activity for children, as well as the particular importance of books and stories in child development.
Unit 4: Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people
This unit examines legislation, guidelines, policies and procedures for safeguarding the welfare of children and young people (including e-safety). Your employees will look at what action to take when children or young people are injured or ill and, when complete, they will be able to recognise emergency procedures and how to respond to suspicions that a child or young people has been abused, harmed or bullied.
Unit 5: Use food and nutrition information to plan a healthy diet
This unit will help your employees to build an understanding of how to make healthy and nutritional food choices for children. They will develop knowledge of food labels and what to look out for to ensure that children are given a balanced diet.
