Many Holland College programs have degree pathways. For more information, see our Degree Pathways section.
The Early Childhood Care and Education program is grounded in a theoretical understanding of early childhood development. You will learn how to design and implement curriculum that inspires young minds; helps children develop socially, emotionally, and physically; and promotes inclusiveness. You will discover how much work goes into creating child’s play—and experience the joy that comes with it!
Part of your training will be in the early learning centre located on our Prince of Wales Campus.
You will have the opportunity to study the historical roots of child care and education and child growth and development, and to explore the connections between these factors. You will also develop an understanding of relationships, and how play and the learning environment contribute significantly to a child’s development. Through study and practical application, you will experience the thrill of making a difference in the lives of children and their families.
