African Nova-Scotian ECEs are needed now, more than ever before

Child with ECE student

African Nova-Scotian early childhood educators play an important role in shaping anti-racist communities because children need to see diversity in their environment, not just hear about it. And with Nova Scotia rolling out a pre-primary program for four-year-olds across the province, employment-ready ECEs who are African-Nova Scotian are needed now more than ever.

To meet this demand, NSCC's Akerley Campus is now offering Early Childhood Education in an entirely Africentric learning environment. Delivered online and in-person, you’ll see yourself represented in the classroom.

Your faculty are respected African Nova-Scotian educators who teach you about the major theories of child care and development, giving you the knowledge and skills you need to graduate in two short years. Then you’ll be ready to work with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children in settings like licensed daycares, family resource centres, early intervention clinics and public health services.

Africentric ECE bursaries

Financial support in the form of bursaries that cover full tuition for two years (including College fees, program costs and books) are available to students enrolled in the program who are in good academic standing.

Although bursaries cover full program costs, there will still be some expenses associated with being a student. Explore a few options that can help you pay for school
