Why choose Early Childhood Education?

Our program promotes working with and supporting the family unit, using an anti-bias approach. We emphasize group work, role modeling and observation while integrating theory with a practical component at locations in Brandon, Dauphin, Winnipeg and rural areas through the two years of your education.

You’ll find your work experience to be a great learning opportunity. You’ll have a chance to observe, evaluate, and put theories into practice as you collaborate with your peers in a wide variety of early learning and child care settings.

Positions are expanding as the need grows for early learning and child care services. You’ll graduate with marketable skills that allow you to work with early learning and child care agencies, including infant, pre-school and school age programs, nursery schools, Headstart, and other child and family resource facilities.
