“The role of early childhood educators is extremely demanding and requires skilled educators to meet the developmental and educational needs of young children, as well as providing parents with support in the very challenging role of child rearing.”


Karen Kearns

ICCC Director of Studies

Karen is perhaps best known for her award winning ‘Working in Children’s Services ‘textbooks published by Cengage Australia.  Karen started her career as an early childhood educator in the mid 70’s and has worked in a wide variety of early childhood roles including teaching in both early childhood settings and schools, consultancy, advocacy and legislative compliance.  Karen also lectured in early childhood education at the University of Newcastle.Over the last 15 years Karen, now CEO of International Child Care College, has focused her energies on the challenges of delivering high quality vocational education and training. Specifically Karen has worked with her team to develop training and assessment tools to meet the needs of students undertaking Certificate III and Diploma in children’s services.Karen has always been a strong advocate for the early childhood sector and is concerned about the ever increasing demands and responsibilities placed on educators. Specifically Karen believes that the current early childhood ideology, while quite sound in theory, is becoming increasingly challenging to deliver.  Karen’s message is that educators must become strong self-advocates and begin to take charge of the early childhood profession.
