School of Education & Childhood Studies

Our programs offer current theory, research and practice so you'll gain the skills and knowledge to work effectively with 21st century children and youth.

Why study education and childhood studies at CapU? 

Connect your passion for supporting children and youth with a career in the school system as an Education Assistant (EA). In CapU's Education Assistant program, you'll learn how to support students in Kindergarten-Grade 12 who present with a wide range of abilities. EAs are in high demand, as there's a critical shortage of certified and trained practitioners for on-call, part-time or full time positions. 

CapU's Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) programs – Diploma, Bachelor and Post-Baccalaureate – foster intellectual curiosity and critical thinking relevant to advocacy and leadership in early childhood education careers, advanced study, and lifelong learning. The ECCE Diploma meet the requirements of the Early Childhood Educator Registry for the ECE Certificate to Practice, Infant/Toddler Certificate to Practice and/or the Special Needs Certificate to Practice.
