Early Childhood Education – Basic Certificate

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Early Childhood Education – Basic Certificate

Students who intend to apply for this program must attend a FREE INFORMATION SESSION.

This basic Early Childhood Education (ECE) program is designed for those planning to care for and educate young children 3-5 years of age in preschool, group child care centres, “early learning” programs and “family places”.

The ECE – Basic Certificate program offered by Burnaby CCE is approved by the Early Childhood Registry of the BC Ministry for Children & Families.

The course content and competencies are similar to those of other approved colleges. Our pedagogical vision includes the current practices of responsive curriculum, inquiry based learning and the curriculum from the BC Early Learning framework.

The ECE program is designed for part time study, with classes scheduled for evenings and Saturdays. Students can start the program in January or September, and can choose a completion schedule of 2 years or 3 years.

Successful completion of 14 courses (including 3 practicums, total 9 weeks) is required for licensing by the Early Childhood Educator (ECE) Registry.
