Early Childhood Education and Daycare

Many organizations such as daycare centres, religious groups, YM/YWCAs and government or community agencies offer early childcare services. In order to qualify to work as an early childhood educator, you must have a diploma or a degree in early childhood education (ECE). Children in ECE and daycare programs can range in age from early infancy to six years old.

For more information on a career as an early childhood educator, please consult the Association of Early Childhood Educators website here.
