Just like you, we are unique and we all bring important understanding to our work with children.

Creative Minds Early Learning Society strives through its Early Childhood Education (ECE) Certificate Program to provide a high quality ECE program that helps you develop skills appropriate to the wide variety of pedagogical settings experienced by both pre-service and in-service practitioners. Community, Nature, Indigenous perspectives, and Inquiry learning all figure into the ECE certificate curriculum.

The ECE Certificate Program is based on the belief that knowledge and understanding of early childhood education is best attained through participating in a supportive learning community. Throughout the entire program of studies, the course content is paced so as to enable students to observe and engage directly with children as they acquire theoretical knowledge.

The program is closely linked with an operational Creative Minds Early Learning Centre and selected preschools.
