Program Information

School:University of the Fraser Valley
Faculty:Early Childhood Education
Field of Study:Early Childhood Education and Teaching
Description:Are you looking to take the next step in your Early Childhood Education (ECE) career? UFV’s Early Childhood Education diploma builds on the knowledge and skills obtained through the ECE certificate program. Having established a strong foundation of professional practice with the ECE certificate, you can choose to further your knowledge and competencies to work specifically with infants or children with special needs. These two program options share a common set of three core courses and each requires a different set of three specialty courses, including a 26-hour seminar and a 200-hour practicum.

Upon completion of the 1-year program, you can apply to the Provincial Licensing Board to register as a special needs or infancy (under three years of age) supervisor. After you graduate, you are ready to enter the workforce. You can also continue your studies and ladder into the Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care.
