The Future’s Bright For Our Childcare Students

Kensington and Chelsea College’s childcare department is celebrating a triple success as it sends off 3 outstanding students to the University of their Choice.

3 learners from the CACHE EARLY YEARS EDUCATOR course, the new GOLD STANDARD level 3 which confers license to practice are going to study at the prestigious Roehampton institute – named the best modern university in London in The Sunday Times Good University Guide rankings 2015.

Kensington and Chelsea College has an excellent reputation in the early year’s sector with outstanding teaching and excellent relationships with nurseries all over London.

Chyna Labadie aged 17, took her level 2 in childcare here at the College and has now achieved her level 3.

I have decided to study a BA in education to get a rounded view on education, to study it from all perspectives before deciding which area to specialise in but probably primary. I have had a fabulous time at KCC I have made lots of friends and feel like I have really grown both as a person and a learner and am looking forward to the next stage.Chyna Labadie

Marina Goldstein aged 27; previous to taking her level 3 at the College had a career in media.

I wanted a complete change of career and was interested in the impact play can have on children after working as a volunteer with young people with special needs. Alongside my level 3 I have also been studying Play Therapy at Roehampton. It’s been a lot of work mixed with my placement and weekend work with children and young people with special needs but I now have the experience, my license to practice and an MA in play therapy to look forward to!

 The EYE level 3 was launched last September and Kensington and Chelsea College has been one of the first in London to experience it. Speaking about the course the tutor says:

The course is pitched at a much higher level and embraces topics which we haven’t taught at level 3 for years BUT it has been a very positive challenge and the quality of the students we have produced bears that out!
