HOLISTIC BABY AND CHILD CARE COURSE
LEVEL 3 (EYE) DIPLOMA
The innovatory and pioneering Holistic Baby and Child Care Diploma synthesises Steiner Early Childhood Studies, an introduction to the Pikler approach, contemporary child development and Early Years Foundation Stage requirements. With CACHE as the awarding body, and quality assured by Crossfields Institute, Stroud, this programme has been designed to meet the requirements of the government’s new criteria for Early Years Educator (Level 3) Qualifications, released in July 2013. The first cohort of 19 students has now successfully completed course. The next course will start in September 2017
The qualification provides the minimum Level 3 EYE qualification for those wishing to care for children up to 5 years old in mainstream settings.
Whilst the programme covers the development and care of children up to school age, there is an emphasis on the crucial first three years.
In addition, the training provides depth of understanding and a practical foundation for those wishing to work as Steiner/Pikler inspired parent and child group leaders, childminders, play group leaders, parenting course leaders, kindergarten assistants and carers of children up to three years old in Steiner settings.
The Holistic Baby and Child Care course is offered by Emerson College. It is part-time with days in London and residentials at Emerson College, Sussex as well as practice placements in work settings. The programme takes 16 months to complete.
"A deeply nourishing insight into Early Years Education. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to enter this profession (journey) and to anone who is already in Early Years Education at a mainstream setting."
Lorena Alina Cavalconti
"A heartfelt thank you for creating a truly holistic course, demonstrated in its content, teaching and social realms. The breadth of the curriculum has educated me across the whole range of skills required for working with children from birth to three; understanding the EYFS, experiencing the warming "heart of care" and exploring the spiritual life of the young child. The course really focussed on nurturing my professionalism, and self-development (a life long gift!). You, your core tutors and skilled visiting specialists are all brilliant exponents of your chosen areas - congratualations on assembling such a group!!" Jack Cryer
THE NEXT COURSE STARTS IN SEPTEMBER 2017
