I am finally studying. I am doing my certificate 3 in children's services (I worked in a daycare center before having kids of my own). I start at the end of this month and the course is 13 weeks, with 4 weeks work placement and first aid. I cannot wait to start. I'm so excited. I am hoping to get a job out of it and maybe do my diploma either on the job or further study. The course only cost just over $150, that includes fee and books and a t-shirt.
