Student review
The course was full of important theory that related directly to Early Childhood. It is great that as we were studying we were also required to partake in industry placement so we could put our studies into practice. I feel the curriculum was implemented in a way that all styles of learning were catered for (practical, theory etc.) creating an environment that was inclusive of different learning styles.

Student review
It was easy to study on campus at south west TAFE, however it was hard to become a good educator with not much pay but long hard work at childcare services.
