Parenting can be a daunting experience. In a short time, you feel you have to become an expert feeder, nappy changer and baby sleep guru! It's normal not to have all the answers. This course will provide you with that extra help so you can improve and create a better life for you and the children in your care.
During this course you will learn how to provide positive toilet training experiences, how to promote positive eating behaviours and importantly how to enhance your relationship with the children in your care.
We're committed to you! As an OCA student you will receive a range of support services to assist you with your learning journey. This includes: live chat, technical, admin and general course support and a dedicated trainer to support your learning.
