Childcare Courses Career Options
Get off on the right foot towards a rewarding career in early childhood care and education with Southern Solutions’ nationally recognised childcare courses.
Childcare is one of Australia’s fastest-growing professions. In fact, Job Outlook estimated that between November 2014 and November 2019, the number of job openings in the childcare industry was set to reach 50,000!
The childcare umbrella encompasses a variety of roles across a range of care systems. Below we introduce some of the most common. What path can you see yourself following?
Early Childhood Educator
When you’re working in childcare, you’re doing more than taking care of children; you’re also educating them. An early childcare educator provides fundamental activities and opportunities for babies and toddlers to develop. You’ll assist with planning and implementing daily activities as well as providing consistent supervision. Parent communication is also an important part of any child care educator’s day.
Family Day Care Educator
The childcare industry – as well as each individual educator – is pivotal in moulding all aspects of a child’s development. That includes social, behavioural, emotional, and intellectual growth. Family day care is an ever-expanding branch of childcare where an educator cares for children in his or own home, providing a reassuring “home away from home”.

Help children develop emotionally and watch as they fine-tune their motor skills during their most impressionable years as a childcare assistant. Direct interaction with children – through various structured programs and activities – is conducive to early childhood development.
Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) Educator / Assistant
Provide valuable care to school-aged children both before and after the school day. OSHC is a highly valued service offered to parents who find themselves unable to adjust a working schedule around school hours. OSHC educators and assistant ensure students are focused, comfortable, and safe.
