Why choose Early Childhood Program Management?

"The Early Childhood Program Management program gave me the opportunity to learn from home without having to travel to school or take time off from work. The instructors were very available and knowledgeable and definitely enhanced my learning. The practicum component was a great way to end the program, as I was able to spend 2 weeks in a Day Care, learning from a Director and Assistant Director who gave me a much better understanding of how a Day Care operates, as well as the responsibilities of management."

- Kim Giesbrecht


"I had the opportunity for in-class learning and hands-on experiences, but most importantly, I was able to meet other ECEs, network and make connections.  I loved that our class sizes were small and our instructors were friendly, open and understanding."

- Chan Church
