Early Learning and Child Care Certificate Applied Early Learning and Child Care

Keyano College

Keyano College
Quality Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) embraces a philosophy that children thrive in developmentally appropriate, child-centered play programs that use a problem-solving approach to guidance. Keyano College's Applied ELCC Certificate program incorporates this philosophy, providing students with the skills and credentials needed to work in the childcare field. Delivered in an apprenticeship style, students will benefit from both theoretical learning in the classroom and periods of on-the-job education in childcare centers. Practical experience is gained with children, developing best practices for childcare at each stage of a child's development.
