CDI College launches Early Childhood Education program at Victoria campus
Victoria, BC – June 11, 2013 – CDI College is now offering a 43-week Early Childhood Education program at its campus in Victoria. Applications are being accepted and classes will be starting soon.
One of the most rewarding careers in the education industry is contributing to the early development of infant, toddler and preschool aged children. Formal training in early childhood education provides the skills and qualifications needed to work as a daycare worker, community centre programmer, preschool teacher or caregiver.
The Early Childhood Education program at CDI College immerses students in a skills-rich curriculum that includes two mandatory practicum placements within real work environments.
Students take classes in a wide range of subjects, including program planning, human behavior, communications, healthcare and language development. As key role models in the early years of a child’s life, professionals in the ECE field are motivated by the difference they make on the job. Early childhood educators have a strong impact on the mental, physical and emotional aspects of human development.
At CDI College, industry-experienced instructors cover the theoretical and practical areas of the ECE field. Smaller class sizes mean that students have more interaction with their peers and with the instructor, as well.
With greater emphasis on the impact early childhood education has on child’s life, the demand for ECE professionals will continue to grow throughout the province. The new Early Childhood Education program at CDI College in Victoria will help to train a new generation of ECE providers.
