Early Learning and Childcare

Welcome to the SQA Early Learning and Childcare Resource which contains bright and exciting materials designed to support learners studying Early Learning and Childcare qualifications.

Developed by SQA, in partnership with a variety of individuals and organisations, this free resource provides opportunity for learners to watch interesting and attractive videos which show working early learning environments, with children from pre – birth and upwards.

Supporting interviews with the professionals that work in these environments are also included to give learners an insight into the day to day aspects of each role and the route learners could take towards becoming a childcare practitioner.

To support each video, and guide learners to explore the topics introduced, links and further suggestions for learning opportunities are provided to signpost learners to useful information, resources, initiatives and strategies relevant to children and young people in Scotland today.
