A first for children’s services in Sri Lanka, Mother’s Touch launched their Australian Preschool and Daycare, which follows the Australian Education and Care Services guidelines. The most important aspect of this Model Centre is that all staff hold Australian qualifications and the centre is assessed to ensure that it maintain Australian Standards. The centre provides daycare for children aged six months to six years. Play group and Preschool for children aged between two and half to five years of age is also available.
Currently Mother’s Touch offers Australian Qualifications in Children’s Services in collaboration with University Preparation College (UPC), Sydney, Australia. They now offer two of UPC’s early childhood programmes in Children’s Care and Education, the Certificate III in Children’s Services and the Diploma in Children’s Services (Education and Care).
