Sprott-Shaw Community College has announced that our Early Childhood Education Basic program will now be available in Abbotsford and Early Childhood Eduction Post-Basic program will now be available in Surrey.
Early childhood educators develop daily activities for children. They lead children in activities by telling or reading stories, teaching songs, demonstrating the use of simple musical instruments, preparing craft materials and demonstrating their use, and taking the children to local points of interest. They guide and assist children in the development of proper eating, dressing and toilet habits. They also observe children and discuss, when appropriate, children’s progress or problems with parents and other staff members. They attend meetings and workshops to develop and discuss new teaching methods. They may supervise and coordinate the activities of other early childhood educators and early childhood educator assistants.
Federal government plans to increase accessibility of licensed child care may have a significant and positive effect on employment growth. The federal plan is to increase the number of regulated spaces significantly over the next several years and to increase their affordability through federal financial support. If this initiative comes into effect, there will be a notable shortage of trained professionals needed to staff these new spaces. It is also likely that this infusion of money could increase average salaries.
