Do you like caring for young children? Take your interest to a new level by
turning it into a career in early childhood education (ECE).

Here are some reasons to start a career in ECE:

     Help advance the future of the growing generations by assisting
      children in their cognitive learning and emotional development.
     Enter a field with increasing opportunities as the government creates
      more jobs in ECE due to demands in roles to promote the benefits of
      learning at an early stage in life.
     Job growth is expected to stay positive. According to Service Canada,
      college graduates make up the majority of the labour pool, and
      employment outlook remains very good in years to come.
     Birth rates continues to increase, says Service Canada, which means
      that there will be clienteles to be helped by ECE workers.
     Benefits of early childhood education is becoming more prominent to
      parents and guardians, so demand for Early Childhood Educators will
      continue to grow.

Many ECE workers start their career in child centres. Centennial College has
child care centres in Toronto to help provide its students and the public
manage their school and work life with their personal commitments. The
Centennial College child care centre in Toronto is located near the
Centre for Creative Communications while the Scarborough location is at the
college’s main site at Progress Campus. The professional workers in those
daycares must be registered in the College of Early Childhood Educators
(CECE).

In addition to its childcare centres, Centennial College also offers an ECE
program that will lead to careers, not only in child daycare centres but also
in educational institutions, community centres, and women and children’s
resource centres. The Early Childhood Education (at Progress Campus) 1221
program is a two-year program located at Progress campus, preparing
students to become Early Childhood Educators. They can become
Kindergarten Teachers, Tutors, Assistant Teachers, Day Care Supervisors,
and Pre-school Support Workers. Before that, they must be graduate from
the two-year program designed to improve their understanding in childhood
development and apply programs for children in an educational and safe
manner.
The Early Childhood Education program at Progress Campus proves to be
highly competitive, so spots will fill out quickly. Centennial College
recommends their prospective students to apply early before the deadline at
the Ontario Colleges website. Its early childhood studies involves academic
training and a field placement starting on second semester. Students will
continue to put their knowledge into practice with a field placement on the
third semester in a childcare setting, under the supervision of a qualified
early childhood educator. Graduates will relish the skills and training gained
at college as they enter the workforce as Early Childhood Educators.
