BE an early childhood educator
"I feel blessed to work in childcare. You're playing a role in cognitive, social and emotional development." – Tarlia, Early Childhood Education and Care
Tarlia wanted to be a hairdresser or a drama teacher, but the arrival of her baby brother Zavier unlocked a true gift.
"I was just fixated on watching him grow and reach milestones,” says Tarlia. “I knew then that I wanted to be in a career where I was always working with kids."
To satisfy that aspiration, she enrolled in a certificate in Early Childhood Education and Care at TAFE NSW, and then went on to complete a diploma. Her studies led her to an educator role, which she's loving!
As the demand for childcare places continues to grow, TAFE NSW graduates like Tarlia are perfectly positioned to take advantage for an accomplished, fulfilling career.
