Early Childhood Education Diploma

Diploma 72 weeks

It's important for children to get a strong start to their education. With the right training, you can have a profound impact on a child's developmental success.

As an early childhood educator, you will plan, organize, and implement programs for children between infancy and 12 years old. You will lead children in activities to stimulate and develop their intellectual, physical, and emotional growth, and ensure their security and well-being.

Get the training you need to enter this in-demand field through the Early Childhood Education diploma program. You will gain a solid foundation of skills and knowledge as well as specialized training so you can work with infants and toddlers, and children with learning disabilities.

Upon graduation, you will be prepared to work in child care centres, daycare centres, kindergartens, agencies, and other settings where early childhood education services are provided.

This program has been approved by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training.


Individuals who have successfully completed early childhood training through a recognized educational institution in British Columbia may apply to the BC Early Childhood Educator Registry for certification as a Basic Early Childhood Educator (ECE), Infant/Toddler Educator (ITE), Special Needs Educator (SNE) or Early Childhood Educator Assistant (ECEA).  Contact the Early Childhood Educator Registry for details of the application process at 1.888.338.6622 or visit their website at: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/early-learning/teach/training-and-professional-development/become-an-early-childhood-educator
