Cut down your search for the perfect team member.
Do you keep losing trainees or staff?
Did they quit telling you the job was “not what they were expecting”?
Are you sick of time wasters?
If you’re done with spending too much time sifting through loads of resumes from people who don’t understand our profession, add our tool to your recruitment process. Written by Early Childhood Educators, this Introduction to Childcare Online Course gives your potential applicants a taste of Children’s Services, with a certificate included, so they can decide whether childcare is right for them before applying for your position. You can also use our tool for an induction training module for volunteers or those new to your service.
You don’t have to do anything but tell your applicants about it! This mini-course gives your job applicants a taste of Children’s Services, with a certificate included, so you can see who is serious about working in your organisation.
The best part is – it’s free for centres to use! Absolutely no cost to you or your service.

360° Views of a Childcare Centre
Learners can take their time exploring a real-life childcare centre! We’ve got both indoor and outdoor virtual environments covered so even if they’ve never set foot in a centre, they will know exactly what’s going on.
In each room of the virtual tour, we’ve placed ‘Hot Spots’ which give the applicant or staff member an inside scoop of what they’re looking at! They’ll get new information in every Hot Spot – so keep an eye out!
