Early childhood educators play an essential role in shaping children's lifelong views of learning. We teach children from birth to age twelve, nurturing them through activities and play that develop their intellectual, physical, and emotional growth. People remember the teachers that had an impact on our lives. If you are patient, loving, and creative, a career as an early childhood educator could be your calling.
In our Early Childhood Education program, you'll learn how to design, apply, and evaluate holistic educational programs, as well as develop skills related to observation, documentation, reflective practice, professionalism, leadership, and relationships. In this program, students also acquire knowledge and ability in child guidance, language and literacy development, health and safety, diversity and inclusiveness, and child development.
In support of the New Brunswick (NB) Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care – English, the program’s educational approach is constructivist and developmental/interactional. Students have experiential learning opportunities throughout the program through NBCC's innovative Living Classroom, which provides practical opportunities to grow as educators and build confidence. A practicum during the first year also allows you to gain real-world experience in the early learning and childcare sector. Enroll today in the Early Childhood Education program and pursue a rewarding career where you can play a critical role in starting the next generation off on the right foot.
