Description

MITT’s Diploma in Early Childhood Education is an innovative and comprehensive program that provides students with the knowledge, skills and practice to work with children, aged newborn to 12 years old, in various childcare settings, as well as the practical opportunities to hone and master their knowledge and skills.

Students develop their understanding of child development, guiding techniques and play-based curriculum, including art, music, literature and science, while learning to create and implement meaningful, age-appropriate, culturally diverse and inclusive programming for children.

This program is ideal for individuals who enjoy working with young children, helping them grow, learn and explore the world around them.

This program is provincially accredited by the Child Care Education Program Approval Committee (CCEPAC) as meeting the qualifications for Early Childhood Educator Level II designation.

Specializations

Upon successful completion of this ECE diploma program, students will be eligible to apply for the Early Childhood Educator Level II certification.

Consult www.gov.mb.ca/fs/childcare for detailed information regarding ECE II certification requirements and the application process.

Work Practicum

This program has three practicum experiences over two years. Practicum provides students the opportunity to see a variety of children’s programs and delivery, and to practice and master their own skills and interaction with children. Prior to each practicum, students will require the following clearances:

  • a Police Information Check (PIC) and Vulnerable Sector (VS) check;
  • a Child Abuse Registry check;
  • First Aid and CPR certification; and
  • Co-Op Work Permit.

MITT does not guarantee a Work Practicum placement and, in such situations, the Institute may explore alternative options for program completion with a student. MITT also reserves the right to assign students to out-of-town placements. Students will be responsible for all transportation and accommodation costs associated with the assigned placement. Successful completion of all practicum credits is required for a student to graduate from the Early Childhood Education Diploma program.
