The purpose of this qualification is to equip learners with basic knowledge and skills that will enable them to enter the labour market in the pre-school education sector.

Qualifying learners will be competent to:

  • Work in an early childhood development environment such as a pre-school or a care facility for children of working mothers.
  • Work as a professional au pair locally and abroad.
  • Work as a child caregiver.


There is a need for qualified Early Childhood Development practitioners. These practitioners need knowledge and skills to ensure optimal education and developmental outcomes for children from birth to six years. Centurion Akademie is responding to this need by offering a qualification that will be able to cultivate a pool of qualified practitioners.

The Higher Certificate is suitable for learners who are already in the field and those who do not meet the entry requirements for Diploma or Bachelor Degree studies.
