Do you love children? Do you want to help children learn and grow in a safe and stimulating environment? Do you want to be an inspiration and role model, instilling positive values in future generations during the most formative years of their lives?

As an Early Childhood Educator (ECE), you will be supporting young children’s early learning and development by providing rich experiences in the areas of: well-being, belonging, exploration, creativity, language, literacies, social responsibility, and diversity.  At Stenberg College , we  believes that children learn through play and that they must be free to choose what they want to do in an environment that is safe and stimulating. When Early Childhood Educators support play in a warm and nurturing manner, children’s development is enhanced in all aspects. Stenberg College is committed to developmentally appropriate practices, and culturally sensitive and inclusive childcare.

This profession is perfect for stay-at-home parents, young adults looking to start their first career, and for individuals looking to start a business from their own home. Stenberg College grad Natalie Castro enrolled in the ECE program after numerous years working in retail, and grew, both personally and professionally. “The program allowed me to be a better person. I learned a lot about myself, as a person and a parent. I learned to be patient with others. The program really enhanced my knowledge and opened my eyes to the variety of educational techniques that exist for infants and toddlers.”

Not only is this career flexible and rewarding, but it is also in high demand. Over 98%  per cent of our Stenberg’s Early Childhood Education graduates find employment as ECE’s within six months of program completion, while some even start their own daycare businesses. In as little as 46 weeks including an 8-week practicum, you could realize your passion and start your new career.

For those who wish to take their ECE training further, Stenberg offers a 28-week Post-Basic dual diploma, qualifying grads to care for infants, toddlers, and children with special needs. The Post-Basic diploma program is aimed at working ECE’s and is offered in an online-based format to allow for maximum flexibility.
