What Our Students Say!

” I am currently on placement in a childcare centre, as part of my Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care which I started in July 2015. Throughout my study, I have had supportive and knowledgeable staff training me. The educator I am observing and assisting says I am useful and competent in my training area. Proof that coming to Queensford College was a great decision.”
