Avondale College of Higher Education

This program is designed to provide Early Childhood qualifications in the context of Christian values. It not only prepares students to enter the teaching profession in an early childhood centre, preschool or infant school, but also prepares students to be responsible and ethical leaders in an age where children need positive Christian role models. The program is available on-campus or completely online for those currently working in childcare (only), making it even easier for students to fit study around their work and personal life.
