There are three levels to Educare: N4 to N6. Each N-Level takes six months. To be admitted into N4 level, Grade 12 (Matric) or equivalent is a requirement. One can proceed to the next level only when the previous level has been successfully completed. On successful completion of each level the candidate will be issued with a National Certificate by the Department of Higher Education & Training (DHET). If you complete all three National Levels (approximately 12 subjects), as well as 18 months of practical experience in the area of study work situation, the N6 National Certificate can be converted to a National Diploma. Please note that with Whitestone College you can still do the qualification of your choice and get free Matric Rewrite.
What are Educare Courses all About?
Educare refers to the specialized education of children. It simply means to educate and to care. While parents or guardians are off to work or busy running errands, they need to place their trust in someone to look after their little ones. And believe it or not, a lot goes into looking after children than supervising them while they watch cartoons.
Learn how to Care for Children
Looking after children is a huge responsibility, one that not everyone is equipped to do. Not everyone has these skills, but with the right course and a genuine interest you could easily pick them up. There are a lot of elements you will learn that contribute to properly taking care of children. This includes food and nutrition, educational psychology, child health and more.
Become the Hero They Need
Not all heroes wear capes. In the eyes of little ones, you can either be the hero or the villain. So choose your narrative. Be the one that takes care of them when they fall from the jungle gym, scrape their knees, or when they are being dropped off by their parents. Being the hero also sometimes entails wiping snotty noses and dirty faces.
