VICTORIA, B.C. – The Provincial Government has announced that it is providing more opportunities for British Columbians to train for a career in early childhood education.
In order to provide more opportunities to study in ECE, the Government says it is investing in 12 public post-secondary institutions that provide programs in this field.
About two-thirds of the new student spaces are designated for institutions serving rural and remote communities.
One of the 12 institutions to receive funding includes Northern Lights College for $70,250 for 12 additional ECE student spaces.
This is the second phase of the Province’s three-year, $7.4-million investment in early childhood education.
As set out in the Childcare BC plan, the Government says up to 620 more ECE students will graduate between 2018 and 2021.
