About Us


Child Care Services Training provides training and assessment for the nationally recognised qualifications CHC30113 Certificate III Early Childhood Education and Care, CHC50113 Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care and CHC50213 Diploma of School Age Education and Care. Child Care Services Training was established in 2006 to meet the changing needs of the child care sector, to provide relevant, flexible and high quality training.

Our research indicates that students want to combine work and study, and want a training organisation to fit in with their needs. We believe our blend of both theory and ‘hands on’ supportive facilitators will enable students to reach their goal of gaining a qualification.

Child Care Services Training is a subsidiary of Child Care Services Australia. Child Care Services Australia manages/operates four long day care centres and one Out of School Hours Care centres. The company employs 60 people to work in its centres in a range of positions at a range of levels.
