Introduction to Early Childhood Education:

It is a critical stage of learning for children and lays the foundation for their future academic and social success. Vancouver Island University offers a certificate program in Early Childhood Education that provides students with the knowledge and skills to work in a variety of settings, such as preschools, daycare centers, and elementary schools.

Why Early Childhood Education:

The importance of Early Childhood Education cannot be overstated. It is during this stage that children develop the basic cognitive, social, and emotional skills necessary for their future success. Research has shown that high-quality early childhood education programs can have a positive impact on a child’s academic achievement, behavior, and long-term success. Furthermore, with the increase in dual-income households, the demand for early childhood education programs is growing. The Education program at Vancouver Island University is designed to prepare students for this growing field and provide them with the skills and knowledge necessary to make a difference in children’s lives.
