Early childhood education is one of the most inspiring and impactful careers you can choose. It’s also one of our province’s most in-demand sectors, with quick entry options and a variety of dynamic roles and settings to choose from. Nurture young minds at their most formative time and grow your career through certification along the way.
Great reasons to become a certified early childhood educator.
The applied nature of early childhood education certification curriculum means you learn critical, tangible skills for real-world employment faster than a four-year degree program.
With the necessary qualifications, employment as an early childhood educator (ECE) is almost guaranteed. What’s more, you can find available positions with a high degree of job security in most communities across the province (and the country).
This isn’t a typical desk job. Quite the opposite. Being an ECE allows you to creatively foster fun learning opportunities and enjoy a dynamic work environment that is constantly evolving to align with the latest developmental research and practices.
ECEs have an enormous impact on the global community by fostering a sense of love, tolerance, and a strength of spirit that will form the foundation upon which each child can construct their own path.
Early childhood is the most important development stage in a person’s life. As an ECE, you are enriching the next generation by guiding lifelong learning and behaviour.
