The Bachelor of Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) offers students a range of academic and education courses that blend theory and practice in the early years, engaging with research and theory.
Three core threads are intertwined throughout the degree: curriculum, childhoods, and leadership and advocacy.
As part of your training, you'll be invited to engage in critically reflective practice, working to create classrooms of social justice and equity for children and families.
Courses in the first two years meet the requirements of the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) for:
- ECE Certificate to Practice;
- Infant/Toddler Certificate to Practice; and/or
- Special Needs Certificate to Practice.
The ECCE degree is a pathway to elementary teacher education programs at both Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia. Learn more about the ECCE programs at CapU by contacting us today.
