Recent childcare announcements mean the UCN’s Early Childhood Education program received 5.5 million dollars to expand the program as the province looks for 3000 New ECEs.
This money will help fund programs in The Pas and Thompson.
The program has been expanded and the fall session will be starting next week with registration until September 25th.
Laura Ayres early childhood education coordinator tells us what ECEs are:
"Early Childhood Education - or ECE for short- is the professional designation for individuals who care and educate children from 12 weeks to 12 years old in childcare facilities and in designated childcare family centers."
The Manitoba government does offer tuition support that will reimburse you to attend programs.
