There has never been a better time to study childcare in Australia and pursue a career in this area. The Australian Government is encouraging more mother’s back-to-work by offering childcare rebates.
Half of all mothers now return to work by their child’s first birthday, compared with 39% in 1991. The country is also experiencing a baby boom with a staggering 21.5% increase in babies being born since 2002.
It is now becoming the social norm to return to work, especially part-time, because of changing social attitudes. This has led to an increase in demand for child carers and nursery assistants.
Birth numbers are setting new records and are now exceeding 300,000 a year. If you have thought about working with children, then you should look at enrolling onto our Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care which will qualify you in all aspects of looking after small children.
So if you want a career where jobs outstrip supply, then this is the course for you.
