Early Childhood Education and CareAmelia Ayars

I love being around children and watching them develop. They have so many questions, and a great imagination. The Diploma of Children's Services helped me to understand their development and how children grow and learn.

As soon as I came to Open Day and saw the campus, I knew I wanted to study here.

We did practical placement which I loved. We had two focus students that we had to observe, and plan experiences for them.

After completing the Diploma I have now gone on to study the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood). Studying at TAFE first was a great pathway to this degree. It really prepared me well and I already had a good understanding of children and their behaviours, rather than starting straight from high school. The Diploma also gave me quite a few credits towards the degree, which means I didn't have to undertake all of the first year courses again.
