The ECCE program includes three applied theory practicum courses. In each successive course, students extend their knowledge and skills developed in the previous practicum. This course is the third course in the sequence. Students will continue to develop skills in observing, documenting and understanding children and their play and develop programming that honours individual differences, family and cultural practices. During this practicum, the student will be expected to participate as a member of the teaching team.
EDUC 277 is an approved Experiential course for Cap Core requirements.
Prior to practicum placement, students must submit the following documentation in accordance with the Child Care Regulations: a resume, three references, criminal record check, medical report and TB test. It is recommended but not required that students have some experience working with children (birth to 5 years of age) as an employee or volunteer.
