Child Care Training and Education

The Ministry of Health and the Child Development Programme (CDP) are dedicated to informing the public and stakeholders about training opportunities and provide educational resources in the field of child care.

Training

The target audience for the training is divided into the following categories:

General Public – education events that are appropriate for anyone with interest in the area of child care

Parents – training targeted at parents and other family members caring for children.

Providers – training targeted at providers caring for children in their home or a child care centre. The letters “CPD” next to the course indicates it would apply to any continuing education needs.

Some courses may be suitable for more than one category and will be identified accordingly.
