Early Learning and Child Care Diploma

Keyano College

Keyano College

www.keyano.ca
Early Learning and Child Care courses are based on a philosophy that children thrive in developmentally appropriate, child-centered play programs that use a problem-solving approach to guidance. Practical experience with children is an integral part of the program. The Early Learning and Child Care Diploma provides students with the knowledge, skills and competencies to pursue professional, supervisory positions in childcare. Study involves an ongoing forum of networking with other experienced early childhood professionals and projects tailored to students' specific interests and requirements. Continuous intake is available on a Full-time or Part-time basis, with programming delivery offered in an alternative format (face-to-face and/or synchronous and asynchronous online) to accommodate working childcare worker schedules. Study is also available through evening classes and day classes when space allows. Graduates are employed primarily in daycare centres, preschools, out-of-school care (OSC) and family day homes.
