Overview

The Early Learning and Child Care diploma program will combine theory with practice to prepare graduates for Child Development Supervisor certifications from Alberta Human Services.

Note: This program is a full two-year program. Graduates of NorQuest's  Early Learning and Child Care Certificate program or other Early Learning and Child Care certificate programs should apply to the Early Learning and Child Care Diploma - Year 2 Only version of the program.

Early learning and child care professionals play an important role in supporting families and promoting healthy growth. Research shows the early years are critical in shaping a child's overall development. The importance of play in how children understand the world around them is embedded throughout this program, and it aligns well with current Canadian curriculum frameworks in early learning and care.

Practicum/Work Experience

This program includes four practicums totalling 800 hours.
