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

WHAT SETS CHILDREN FIRST TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT APART FROM OTHERS?

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.

Our sessions are held in Western Sydney and are accessed by educators from multiple child care providers in the industry from the Blacktown and Penrith local government areas and out to the Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury regions .

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