“My daughter has been attending this nursery for the last 18 months. The main reason I would recommend it is that the staff are extremely attentive and caring. Nothing is too much trouble. I also like that they involve the children in community activities. My daughter attends the local secondary school once per week to be taught sport by Sport Leadership students. I know there is also a scheme to allow them to visit a local care home. They also raise money for various charities throughout the year and are eco-friendly. They follow the curriculum for excellence but also ensure that they have fun days for the children e.g. pyjama parties. The manager is excellent. She ensures the children spend time outside.”

“My daughter has recently joined Cardonald Private Nursery and settled in right away, she is really enjoying her time there. All the staff are very helpful and easy to talk to. Whenever I have needed any info on the service the staff have freely let me know all details and responded extremely quickly. When picking my child up, I am told about her day. My daughter has already created good relationships with both staff and other children.”

Early Learning and Childcare

Giving children the building blocks to get off a good start in life is vital, and at Glasgow Clyde College, our courses are designed to give you an excellent foundation in Early Education and Child Care.

Jobs in Early Education and Child Care

If you’re looking to develop the next generation, a career in Early Education and Child Care could be for you. Studying in this area can prepare you to work in a variety of establishments, such as local authority nurseries, education partnership institutions and private child care settings. 

To enhance your studies, you may also consider pursuing opportunities independently, such as working at local youth clubs, summer play schemes and private tutoring, all of which will gain you practical experience.

Some of our courses also allow our students to become eligible to register with the Scottish Social Services Council as Child Care Practioners or Early Years Workforce.

Student Success Story

Martin Winters - Early Education and Child Care Graduate

Martin Winters didn’t originally see himself working as a Child Development Officer, but after realising he needed a change of career, he came to Glasgow Clyde College to study and never looked back.

Martin comments:

“I researched the qualifications I would need to be able to work in Childcare and realised that I had to start at the NC level.  I was accepted to study at Anniesland College and after the first couple of weeks, I knew that I had made the right choice.

I really enjoyed going on placement, which gave me experience of different nursery environments and included a placement at the college nursery.  This was great as I could still access the college to study, which can be difficult when you’re out on placement.”

Martin graduated with an HNC in Early Education and Childcare from Glasgow Clyde College and progressed to employment at a nursery in Glasgow. Martin adds “If anyone is thinking about studying childcare, who is maybe looking at a career change like I was, I would tell them to go for it. There’s a perception that studying childcare is for younger women but children aren’t aware of these stereotypes, they just need a range of unique adults around to help them.”
