Early Childhood Education: Infant and Toddler Educator

Diploma 62 weeks

The Early Childhood Education: Infant and Toddler Educator program combines courses from both the Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Infant/Toddler Specialization programs.

 
In this program, students will learn how to work with young children – with an emphasis on infants and toddlers – through a variety of hands-on training that combines theory and practice. The program covers advanced child growth and development, foundations of working with infants/toddlers, program planning, and more.
 
In order to specialize, students must complete a practicum placement in an infant/toddler setting to develop and implement comprehensive projects that demonstrate their advanced knowledge as well as gain practical experience. Students will also be required to complete observation assignments that will take place in real-world childcare settings, which will be used to complete assignments. These observation hours are required by the Ministry of Children & Family Development.
 
Graduates of our program can acquire a One Year Early Childhood Educator certification and work full time while collecting the 500 hours required for the next certification, the Five Year Early Childhood Educator certification.
 
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 Basic Early Childhood and Infant Toddler Educator training through a recognized educational institution in British Columbia may apply to the BC Early Childhood Educator (ECE) Registry for certification as a Basic Early Childhood Educator (ECE) and as an Infant/Toddler Educator (ITE). 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.
