NCC Online Childcare and Early Learning Course #1

Childcare is something I have always loved to do. I have always loved looking after children and have three of my own. When I was younger, I went to college to study Childcare and Early Learning however I will be honest and say that I was too immature to stick to the course and ended up dropping out. It's not something I am proud of now that I look back. 
I can't change my past but I can change my future!

I had been looking into online courses for a while but never had the courage to do one. NCC Online changed that! They gave me the opportunity to review one of their online courses in exchange for an honest review and I jumped at the chance.

When I first logged on to NCC Online, I was really pleased with how user friendly their website is. I clicked on view my courses, Childcare and Early Learning and I was off. 




On the initial page, I found it really helpful as there is an introduction and user guide. As someone new to online learning, I wasn't sure how to do everything and what was needed so found it a good start to the course.
I found that how they explained it in the user guide was really simple and easy to understand which made me feel a lot more at ease about the course itself.




Each module has a small summary on the homepage so at a later date, I could easily find which module I'm wanting to reread if unsure on something.

The Childcare course is made up of 14 modules and a final exam. The modules come in PDF files which means they are perfect for printing off if you want to write notes on them. I decided to do this as it means whenever I get a spare 5 minutes, I can pick up my course and read a couple more pages. 



I am currently working my way through Module 1 which I am finding really interesting. The course is very in depth and even incorporates other skills into itself like Child Psychology as the first module is all about Growth and Development and how a child thinks and learns.



Overall, my initial thoughts on this NCC Online course is that the website is very user friendly, easy for beginners and explains everything simply (yet in detail) so you know everything you've got to do to complete your course. 
I shall keep you updated on my thoughts through out this course and hopefully, once I've finished... I will pass!
I am really looking forward to this!
