This 45 week Early Childhood Education Ontario College Diploma Program prepares students to become educators of young children in a variety of early learning settings. The program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to work with families and other professionals to support children’s learning and development. It emphasizes the development of inclusive play-based curriculum for children from birth to age 12. Students in the program benefit from opportunities to observe the application of best practices in the community setting and to apply their knowledge in real-world settings as they participate in field placements.
Graduates of the Early Childhood Education program may find work in early learning and care programs, resource and Ontario Early Years centres, home child care, programs offered through community health agencies and in schools as Early Childhood Educators. Graduates will be required to register with the College of Early Childhood Educators to be eligible to apply for many jobs in the profession.
