Program Description

The Early Childhood Education program is a technical program that aims to train students to offer education and basic care to children between 0 and 12 years of age. The intention is to create and maintain an important relationship regarding the psychomotor, physical, cognitive, language, social-emotional and moral developments of the children. These educators also have a role to play in developing, organizing, directing, animating and evaluating educational activities that promote the child’s overall development.

Early childhood educators have to establish a partnership between parents and all the other partners in the child’s life. They have to ensure a safe and healthy environment and that any student intervention happens in a collaborative and consultative atmosphere. As such, early childhood educators must necessarily be team players.

Program Details

Completion of this program leads to an Attestation of collegial studies (AEC).

An AEC degree is a qualification issued in Quebec by cégeps and some private colleges upon successful completion of a credited and recognized program created specifically for an adult clientele to reflect current job-market realities.
