Early Childcare Assistant Diploma

The Early Childcare Assistant Diploma program trains students for increasingly important careers in the early childcare field. Early Childcare Assistants play a crucial role in a young child’s early development, and graduates of the program will be well situated for fulfilling and long-lasting careers in this field.

The Early Childcare Assistant Diploma program develops skills and techniques through a mix of theoretical classroom learning and practical hands-on training. This mix of practical and theoretical training provides the knowledge and confidence needed to step right into the workplace upon graduation.

Graduates of the Early Childcare Assistant program have found employment in daycare centres, nursery schools, pre-schools, kindergartens, government and non-profit organizations and private homes. During your practicum, you will have the opportunity to apply your theoretical skills in a professional setting, which will help develop confidence and practical “real world” experience.
