Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Training Programs in Canada

If you are interested in a career in early childhood education and care or in upgrading your skills, there are many training programs to choose from offered by colleges, institutes and universities across Canada.

The courses vary in length from one to four years, most being one or two years. They range in commitment from full-time to part-time. Online and distance-learning courses are available, offering access if there is no training institution in your community or if your schedule requires more flexibility.
