National World Teacher Day: Early Childhood Education Spotlight
For National World Teachers’ Day, we wanted to take a moment to highlight our Early Childhood Education programs and the impact it has on educators. Our ECE programs provide students with important tools needed to understand how to teach kids effectively and encourages teachers to look at learning from a child’s perspective. If you are drawn to a career where you not only teach but also learn from your students, early childhood education is the perfect career choice for you.
In this blog, we will explore a day in the life of an early childhood educator, what students will learn during our ECE programs, and discuss the different career paths students can take once they earn their diploma.
Preparing to Teach
Early childhood educators often arrive early to get ready for the day. They might bring their notes, write down a list of activities on the board, and answer any questions the children’s parents or guardians may have when dropping off their children at the daycare. When children first arrive to class, it usually takes some time for them to wake up and transition into the day’s activities. Once they take a break for playtime and snacks, they might engage with the rest of their classmates under the supervision of the early childhood educator.
Throughout the day, early childhood educators will need to monitor children, answer questions, and provide solutions for any challenges a child might be facing. Every day offers a new opportunity to introduce new activities, and the children’s reactions to them may vary. While these reactions can sometimes be challenging, our Early Childhood Education programs will equip you with the skills to professionally address any difficulties.
Early Childhood Education Programs
We created our Early Childhood Education programs to provide graduates with a complete toolkit of knowledge and occupational competencies necessary to succeed in the industry today. These programs help graduates learn social and emotional communication skills so they can communicate with children and their families about the child’s development.
Students will gain hands-on experience within a workplace giving them a chance to directly learn about their chosen career field. During their practicum placement, students will put into practice how to express their teaching ideas, how to promote communication skills in children, and how to communicate effectively with them. Our Early Childhood Education diploma program is 77 weeks long and includes monthly start dates, no waitlists, practicum placements, and job placement assistance. Other ECE programs also available include our 45-week Early Childhood Education Basic Program, Infant and Toddler certificate program, the Children with Exceptionalities certificate program, and more.

Starting a Career as an Early Childhood Educator
After graduation, students will be qualified to teach in before and after-school daycares, work in preschools or family childcare centres, and start their own daycare businesses. No matter what career path our graduates choose, they will positively influence the early lives of a future generation.
Our Early Childhood Education programs give our students the chance to help children learn, grow, and interact with other children. Do you have a passion for teaching? Check out our Early Childhood Education diploma program for more information and for more blogs, click here.
