What to expect from the course

Although there are many different illnesses which can be experienced during childhood, there are several which are common to many babies and children. Therefore, it is crucial that those who work, or want to work, with babies and children in an early years setting develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of common childhood illnesses. Not only will this help in ensuring babies and children who are unwell receive the care they need, but it will also help lessen the possibility of the illness spreading to others.

This course will equip learners with a strong understanding of common childhood illnesses, including how to provide a safe and healthy environment for babies and young children, how to recognise when a baby or child is unwell, and how to manage acute and chronic health conditions in an early years setting.

Qualifications

On successful completion of this qualification you will have achieved a TQUK Level 2 Certificate in Understanding Common Childhood Illnesses.
