Children are the next generation. They will grow up to be the leaders, the inventors and the creators, so make sure you’re giving them the best possible start in life. Today, we have the benefit of knowledge, and we know that nutrition and emotional support are extremely important.

To help you understand your children, or the children in your care, it is helpful to have some insight into their behaviour, emotions and development. This will help you to guide them, and allow you to teach them the best way to behave. As well as this, the course includes a section dedicated to nutrition. Diet is vital to behaviour and development and it is becoming increasingly common for people to require assistance in making the right choices. If you begin eating healthily early on in life you’re much more likely to continue this and will be less likely to develop health problems.

Learning with Global Edulink has many advantages. The course material is delivered straight to you, and can be adapted to fit in with your lifestyle. It is created by experts within the industry, meaning you are receiving accurate information, which is up-to-date and easy to understand.

This course is comprised of professionally narrated e-Learning modules, interactive quizzes, tests and exams. All delivered through a system that you will have access to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 365 days (12 months). An effective support service and study materials will build your confidence to secure your qualification.

    I am a currently a stay-at-home mom, with two small children and a household to run and I really appreciated the flexibility to study when it fitted MY schedule. I enjoyed doing something that I have never done, on a topic I knew nothing of !! Well done, what a great course.
