There are few things more rewarding than watching a child blossom because of your actions. Whether you’re helping them to take their very first steps, watching them master their ABCs, or supporting them to tackle their fears, every development is a sign of a job well done.
You’ll have a lot of responsibility and you may find yourself with aching feet and hair full of glitter by the end of the day, but if you want job satisfaction, studying for a career working with children in nurseries and early years settings or as a primary school teacher could be just what you’re looking for.
And where better to embark on a successful, fulfilling career in childcare than at The Manchester College – the No.1 College in Greater Manchester for achievement*.
From 2022, Childhood Studies will be offered at our Openshaw (Level 1 - Level 3 courses), Harpurhey (Level 1 courses) and Wythenshawe (Level 1 courses) campuses from 2022. Find out more about our new facilities at Openshaw.

Taylor-Kay Folks • Level 3 Childhood Studies and Education
I have gained confidence and identified my skills and best abilities. My tutors have helped me with so much, from my career research and assignments, to work placement support. They’ve helped us to see all the possibilities of what we can do when we leave.
Hanan Omar • Level 3 Childhood Studies and Education
As the class size is small, my tutors are able to give me extra support. They encourage us to get our work in on time and ensure it is completed to a high standard by giving us advice on how to improve it. I would recommend The Manchester College, I’m so proud of what I have achieved here.
