About Kool Kids Training College
Kool Kids Training College is a Registered Training Organization with nationally recognized qualifications specializing in providing the best quality training for the Early Childhood Education and Care sector.
We provide a supportive environment for our students so that they can achieve their professional and personal goals. Giving each student the opportunity to evolve and develop in an environment which supports and develops their strengths, aspirations and career path.
The origins of our training college are from owning and operating Kool Kids Early Learning Centres in South East Queensland and Northern New South Wales, where we were frustrated with the quality of training in our own centres and felt we must demand better training. That was 7 years ago and since that time of accreditation as an RTO, we have grown to support some of Australia’s leading childcare centre groups across QLD, NSW and Victoria.
Kool Kids Training College is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 40636).
