"Learning with Online Courses AUS has been a fantastic experience for me. I have gained so much extra knowledge to further my career in the childcare and educational environment.

Educators play a vital role in helping young children adopt appropriate behaviours and life skills. One of the most important aspects of being a role model to children is demonstrating correct behaviours within the learning environment. Children who observe Educators eating healthy food and engaging in regular physical exercise are more likely to adopt those habits themselves. It's easy to forget that children are always watching and are always listening.
This course will teach everything you need to know including how daily routines, activities and group times can be used to support and educate children to eat healthy.
We're committed to you! As an OCA student you will receive a range of support services to assist you with your learning journey. This includes: live chat, technical, admin and general course support and a dedicated trainer to support your learning.
