Program Highlights

The Bachelor of Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) offers students a range of academic and education courses that blend theory and practice in the early years, engaging with research and theory.

Three core threads are intertwined throughout the degree: Curriculum, Childhoods, and Leadership and Advocacy. Students are invited to engage in critically reflective practice, working to create classrooms of social justice and equity for children and families.

Courses in the first two years meet the requirements of MCFD for:

  • ECE Certificate to Practice
  • Infant/Toddler Certificate to Practice, and/or
  • Special Needs Certificate to Practice

The ECCE degree is a pathway to elementary teacher education programs at SFU and UBC.

  • Demonstrate pedagogical practices that are connected to contemporary theoretical approaches of learning, thinking and teaching in the field of early childhood care and education
  • Work collaboratively with children, families, colleagues and community to provide relevant and responsive caring and educational experiences
  • Use ethical pedagogical practices that demonstrate an understanding and sensitivity to local and global issues related to early childhood care and education
  • Engage in pedagogical practices that demonstrate mastery of the competencies required to be licensed and employed as an Early Childhood Educator in British Columbia
