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.
