Childcare and Early Years

Working with children and families is hugely rewarding, and no two days are ever the same. Our experienced and friendly tutors will provide a high standard of training, with a focus on keeping children healthy and safe at all times. We’ll also help you develop as an individual, equipping you with the skills and knowledge you need to be a valuable employee in an early years setting.

Work experience is a crucial part of all our courses, so we have built excellent links with local nurseries, playgroups, crèches and schools to help you get a placement that’s right for you. What’s more, we have an Ofsted-rated, good on-site nursery for even more hands-on learning.

With a range of flexible study options allowing you to fit the courses around your schedule, and a track record of students progressing to higher education, a childcare course at Barnfield College is the perfect foundation for a career as an early years educator.

We offer courses from entry level to higher education to help you on the way to a successful career. Our Foundation degree (FdA) courses are validated by the University of Bedfordshire.
