Early Childhood Educators plan inclusive programs that help nurture the physical, psychological and social well-being of children and their families.
This project-based program was developed to meet the provincial standards for early childhood education training in Nova Scotia. It blends classroom study with applied learning with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children. You learn:
- The major theories of child care and development within a warm, caring and stimulating environment.
- The knowledge and skills you need to work with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children in a variety of settings.
- Effective communication strategies for working with children, families, fellow Early Childhood Educators and other professionals.
- How to assess children's abilities and skills to create play-based, inclusive programming that emphasize the development of the whole child as a unique individual.
