Introductory course (pre-application)
Wondering what a career in childcare really looks like? We cover pathways and qualifications in childcare, and give you a taste of some of the topics in our formal childminder training.
You don't need to apply to become a childminder to take this course. It takes less than an hour and it's online–easy peasy.
Once you've applied and been approved to become a Koru Kids childminder, you'll start your formal training. Taught online by one of our friendly experts, Safeguarding training will get you familiar with the ‘safeguarding spectrum’ and the ways in which children can be harmed.
This is vital to ensure the safety of the children in your setting, and one of Ofsted's legal requirements.
Early Years Foundation Stage
You'll get comprehensive training on Learning & Development and Welfare Requirements.
We cover the principles of the EYFS and how they relate to your role. You'll become an expert in learning through play—ready for sessions filled with inspired storytelling, messy activities, and outdoor adventures.
Our paediatric first aid course is delivered partly online, partly in person.
You'll be taught how to identify serious illnesses and manage emergency situations. You'll also learn how to handle minor injuries—apart from a fully stocked first aid kit, we recommend laughter and plenty of cuddles.
Food, Sleep and Assessment Tips
We've created specific e-learning modules you can complete in your own time—Safe Sleep Training, Introduction to Food Hygiene, and Pre-Registration Assessment Visit training.
By the time you're preparing for your assessment visit, you'll be fully clued up on allergies and food safety, sleep safety, and know exactly what to expect during the actual visit.
