English for Academic Purposes (EAP) in partnership with the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) program offers the Early Childhood Care and Education Pathway for international students.
The program is for highly motivated students who are studying at the EAP 090 and EAP 100/101 levels (the top two levels of the EAP program).
The Pathway allows you to begin getting credit for an ECCE credential while you are improving your English. Upon successful completion of the Pathway Program, you will have earned 15 credits you can apply toward your ECCE credential.
