Becoming an early childhood educator means having a career that lets you lay the foundations for children’s education, actively contribute to their development, and support them as they grow, learn, and discover the world.
The goal of the AEC in Early Childhood Education is to train educators to work with children between the ages of 0 and 12 in educational services.
Their role? To teach future citizens!
During their childhood education training, students will learn such skills as:
- Observing children to assess their needs using observational tools;
- Designing educational activities that promote children’s development;
- Supporting children in the areas of physical, cognitive, language, social, and emotional development;
- Adapting environments and making them accessible so everyone can be included;
- Creating and maintaining a meaningful and special relationship with the children, in close collaboration with their parents.
Additionally, the student will be required to complete various observation, integration and teaching practicums in educational settings such as early childhood centers, childcare services in an educational setting, or even directly at the LaSalle des petits Daycare.
Graduates of this AEC program will be able to quickly enter the job market. In fact, the placement rate in this field is very high, due to the high demand for workers.
