Children First Training provides expert and affordable professional development courses for staff and educators in the early childhood education and care sector.

As practitioners, we know ‘early childhood’ so you can be sure you will be provided with training that is current, accurate and, at times, edgy. We always have a vast range on offer from First Aid to understanding the Early Years Learning Framework, workshops for OOSH providers,  as well as creative and culturally diverse courses. We have training for all levels of early childhood, from trainees to experienced to Centre Directors – there’s something for everyone!

Our sessions are primarily held in Western Sydney and are frequented by educators from child care providers throughout the industry – you don’t need to be an educator at our Children First centres to join. We have educators travel from all over Sydney and even interstate. We love the diversity that educators from different centres, near and far, bring to each session.

These factors make Children First Training the preferred choice for many educators.
