Early Learning and Child Care Diploma Early Childhood Development Diploma
When Lakeland College opened as the Vermilion School of Agriculture in 1913 there were only 34 students enrolled. Today Lakeland has campuses in Vermilion and Lloydminster and serves more than 7,500 full-time and part-time students --- but Lakeland is as tight-knit as ever.
Lakeland's comfortable setting allows students to focus on learning. Programs are designed to ease their transition into the work force and/or further study at a four-year institution. The options for study are as diverse as the college. The Vermilion campus is the site of programs in agricultural sciences, environmental sciences, fire and emergency services, human services, interior design technology, and pre-employment and apprenticeship technical trades training. Programs in business, arts, health and wellness, energy and petroleum technology and university transfer are available at the Lloydminster campus. In Edmonton, students can take sign language interpretation.
Through practicum placements, hands-on projects, labs and industry links, Lakeland College students have a world of opportunity to live the learning. Learn more at lakelandcollege.ca.
