Early Childhood Education
Duration/Start: 2 years
Prepare for a rewarding career promoting the development of young children with our Early Childhood Education program. Help guide children as they grow physically, cognitively, emotionally and socially.
What you help children learn and experience through their early years will impact their entire future. With this two-year diploma program, you will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to provide quality early learning and child care to young children. This program is provincially accredited by the Child Care Qualifications and Training Committee (CCQTC).
Be part of enhanced learning experiences, including collaborating with community partners on projects, industry field trips and guest speakers, and four practicum placements. Learn from knowledgeable instructors who model industry best practices.
Learn how important play is for childhood development; learn the skills you need to provide the right intellectual stimulation, as well as opportunities for physical, emotional and social growth. As an Early Childhood Educator, your warmth, understanding and patience are essential to working with culturally diverse children and families.
With an increasing need for early learning and child care settings, employment opportunities are abundant. You can find work in full and part-time programs with children from infants to school-age.
