Been through other training facilities and Kool Kids is both the best and most helpful one I’ve experienced. Highly recommend them to all looking into further studies!

Great layout on website- clear precise with the addition of marking criteria underneath the question that helps with finding the right answer.

Lovely helpful trainers with no amount of questions or enquires too much to ask of them. Nothing short of amazing and I was lucky enough to have both Vanessa and Alison. Completed my certificate 3 and not much longer to go through before also ticking off my diploma.

Kool Kids for my choice over all!!

Simone Phillips

Coming from retail and hospitality background, I was nervous to start my Diploma of Early Childcare and Education, however, once I started the online course, I instantly relaxed and knew that I had made the right decision. I had heard good things about Kool Kids training college which is why I chose to study with them, and once I began, I found it had the easiest online platform to navigate, with each assessment having set question areas such as case studies, practical aspects, and reflection questions to ensure you are gaining full knowledge and understanding of each assessment task. The trainers and centres make life and studying smooth and uncomplicated even when working full time, as everyone is happy to help and lend an ear when you need. Overall, I have absolutely loved studying with Kool Kids training college and have been so lucky to have such a great trainer like Amy to guide me through the process!

After finishing my diploma I can now thank KKTC for providing the best style of training possible - with everything online now it made it easier for me to prioritise certain parts of my assessments due to the way it is all set out. I will definitely be recommending KKTC to anyone wanting to study early childhood.

Brianna White

I have really enjoyed completing my diploma with Kool kids. I have found that my course was enjoyable and I had the most support from Michelle and Rhiannon. When I needed help it was only a message away for help. Rhiannon was very patient and understanding when I found some questions challenging. I 100% recommend Kool kids online training to anyone and I highly recommend Rhiannon as she was very patient with each student.

Samantha Pead

How understanding and supporting both Michelle and Rhiannon were, how much this training helped me to become the educator I am today

Rebecca Mclure

I recently completed my Diploma with Koolkids Training. After years of no study I was hesitant and nervous to sign up. However from the moment I touched base I was so impressed with the level of support and encouragement from my Trainer Alison who was always only a call or message away day or night. I would highly recommend Koolkids

Tasha Lee-Roberts

Studying with KKTC is simple and trouble-free. The workload is set out in a way that is achievable without being overwhelming. The online platform used is easily accessible and straightforward, and I love having my trainer, Amy, making sure I understand everything I‘m learning about. She has been by my side since I started, and is super approachable and is always available to work with me.

Paige Demery

As a mature age student taking on study with Kool Kids Training College for a new career path was very daunting but Alison and Bronwyn were amazing.  Their support, guidance, encouragement and friendship helped me to successfully complete my Diploma and achieve my goal of working with children.

Lisa Dauk

Tara’s passion, flexibility and compassion, are some of the key factors that have made my Diploma studies so enjoyable and successful. I have received so much workplace support, even during the lockdown period, Tara supported me to achieve my goals. Kool Kids Training College is unlike anything else offered in Melbourne I highly recommend them, if you're looking for a trainer that genuinely cares about their students!
