Program Description

Childhood educators work with children between 0 and 12 years of age. The Attestation of Collegial Studies program prepares future educators so they can carry out the following tasks and responsibilities:

  • Addressing children’s basic needs. Childhood educators must ensure the safety of all children in their care, evaluate their needs (in terms of hygiene, comfort, sleep, diet, etc.), give them the appropriate care and assess if interventions are relevant.
  • Addressing children’s psychological and educational needs. Childhood educators must establish significant relationships with the children in their care.
  • Working in partnership with different individuals.
  • Participating actively and regularly in daily activities and team meetings with their colleagues.
  • Designing and revising the educational program, with a combination of flexibility and thoroughness, in their quest for educational coherence.

Successful completion of the program results in an Attestation of collegial studies (AEC/ACS) diploma in Early Childhood Education.

The training portion of the program will be carried out 100% remotely with the exception of internships. Internships can be done in your region.

This program is offered in English only. For the formation in French, see this page.
