10 Reasons to Choose Quality Early Learning and Child Care

Expert knowledge Early childhood educators are experts in child development and are trained to create inspiring learning environments!
Intentionality Early childhood educators provide your child the gift of time and attention. They will stop and explore the new flowers or jump in the mud puddles with your child.
Young at heart Early childhood educators know how to have fun! They’re not afraid to be silly and laugh with your child; all while nurturing your child’s creativity and helping to build their self-confidence.
Setting limits Every child needs reasonable boundaries, such as no playing ball inside. Early childhood educators set limits and support families in doing the same.
Love of literacy Early childhood educators read and tell stories, sing songs, and do puppet shows to inspire a love of language and to build early literacy skills.

Confidence boost Early childhood educators provide safe opportunities for your child to be independent and to become confident in their personality and decision making skills.
Inspired learning Early childhood educators ask open-ended questions to inspire creative thought and curiosity, to encourage children to explore, and to make learning fun.
Life skills Early childhood educators use their expertise to develop programs that use play as a tool for teaching math, literacy, science and essential life skills that last for life!
Making friends Early childhood educators are educated to appropriately support children to gain social skills, which are so important in making friends and developing positive relationships!
Helping hand Everyone gets stumped by parenting from time to time - juggling schedules, demands, and behaviours. When it gets tough and you need someone to talk to, reach out to your child’s early childhood educator!

Blended ECCE Program Wins National Award

July 8th, 2016

Colleges & Institutes Canada recently selected the Early Childhood Care and Education Blended Program as a Bronze recipient of the 2015-2016 CICAN Program Excellence Award.

The Colleges and Institutes Canada Awards Program recognizes and promotes excellence within Canadian colleges, institutes, cégeps, university colleges and polytechnics. The Awards showcase the extraordinary contribution of individuals to their college/institute communities and highlight the role of our institutions in social, cultural and economic development. There are three levels of recognition: Gold, Silver and Bronze.

The Program Excellence Award celebrates diversity and flexibility of programming in Canada’s colleges, institutes, polytechnics, university colleges and cégeps. Inherent to this flexibility is the involvement of business, industry, and the professions in the design of programs in their areas of expertise.

The Early Childhood Care and Education Blended Learning program was created to address a need when the province began the Preschool Excellence Initiative in 2010.  A key component to the success of the first phase of the initiative was the development and delivery of the blended programs. This program permitted students to continue working while participating and resulting in a credential.

The success of the program is through the commitment of the ECCE staff and in collaboration with stakeholders. Congratulations to all of the partners and participants who contributed to this exemplary program!

The recognition was acknowledged and honoured at a pre-gala reception during the CICAN Conference in Quebec City.
