Why study education and childhood studies at CapU?
In the School of Education and Childhood Studies at CapU, you'll develop the skills to work with children and create an enduring love of learning. We offer programs in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) as well as Education Assistant (EA).
CapU's Early Childhood Care and Education programs – diploma, bachelor and post baccalaureate – foster intellectual curiosity and critical thinking relevant to advocacy and leadership in early childhood education careers, advanced study and lifelong learning.
The ECCE Diploma meets the requirements of the Early Childhood Educator Registry for the ECE Certificate to Practice, Infant/Toddler Certificate to Practice and/or the Special Needs Certificate to Practice.
You can also connect your passion for supporting children and youth with a career in the school system as an Education Assistant. In CapU's Education Assistant program, you'll learn how to support students in Kindergarten-Grade 12 who present with a wide range of abilities.
EAs are in high demand, as there's a critical shortage of certified and trained practitioners for on-call, part-time or full-time positions.
