Early Childhood Care & Education Certificate


  • The Early Childhood Care and Education department offers the Basic Certificate as an 'outcome' of courses taken while enrolled in the ECCE Diploma Program.  Students wishing to obtain the ECCE Basic Certificate can do so by applying to the ECCE Diploma program, and exiting the program when they have fulfilled the course requirements for the ECCE Basic Certificate according to the British Columbia Early Childhood Educator Registry. 

    The Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) certificate is embedded in the ECCE diploma and consists of all EDUC 100, 200 level courses and EDUC 281.  This program consists of in-depth courses presented in a manner that supports reflective practice and inquiry. Within the Certificate program course offerings are two applied theory practicum courses that offer students an opportunity to work with children and educators in licensed early years programs.

    Students can be enrolled either full-time or part-time. Classes are offered in a variety of modes, including face to face, mixed mode, on-line and as summer intensives.

    The ECCE Certificate courses meet the requirements of the Early Childhood Educator Registry, (Ministry of Children and Family Development) for the Infant/Toddler Certificate to Practice.
