Early Childhood Education Certificate of Achievement

This introductory program provides the minimum training required by Saskatchewan Ministry of Education in order to work as a child care worker. The curriculum emphasizes content and best practices in three core areas: Child Development, Programming, and Relationships.  Early Childhood Educator (ECE) Certification is required if you work with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children for 65 hours or more per month in a licensed child care centre. All applicants must apply directly to the Ministry of Education for ECE Certification.

In addition to the workshops and online meetings, a home study will be required. 

We will be offering modules in both Nipawin and Melfort. 

Individuals may apply for Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Early Childhood Education (ECE) Certificate of Achievement once they have completed three courses: Health, Safety and Nutrition (ECE 142); Child Guidance 1 (HUMD 183); and, Dynamics of Play 1 (ECE 106).

Completion of Grade 10 is required for entry into the Certificate of Achievement and English Language Requirement
