Our Courses

"I have been a student of Mrs. Theresa Taylor of TALS for the past two (2) years, I completed CACHE Level 2 last year and now I am about to complete CACHE Level 3.   In the beginning of Level 3 of this Early Years Program I was nervous and very unsure of my future. But with the support and encouragement I was given by Mrs. Taylor my self-confidence has developed even more. Her classes are exciting, interactive and no answer given to a question is a wrong. She looks at each student in her class as an individual and she works along with them to make sure that their individual needs are met and they achieve a positive outcome. Mrs. Taylor supported me in times when I want to give up she would say “can’t” is not a word to use, she would say “you can’t give up now because you have reached too far.

I have been  working with children for the past nine (9) years with this I have gained a lot of experience caring for young children, but I did not have the knowledge to explain why I was doing different  planned activities with the children. But when I attended classes with Mrs. Taylor she equipped me with the tools, knowledge and resources I needed to further develop my career as an Early Years Educator. Some of the modules I really liked were equality, diversity and inclusive practices and also I love learning about the different theorists and what they stated about young children learning and development. My favorite is Lev Vygotsky’s theory of “scaffolding” where he states that by the practitioner carefully observing what a child can do we can planned activities that would challenge them on give the child more opportunities to learn and develop.

With this new knowledge, I have obtained the information needed to backup and explain to the parents and carers of the children in my care the benefits and opportunities of learning I would provide to them through planned play activities. And now I am equipped to use the tools I have learned to explain terms, give examples and provide advice to parents and other working professionals that work along with me to develop the holistic needs of the child. Whether it is to develop and build the child’s self- confidence and to make sure that the child’s individual needs are being met on a daily basis"
