UCN's Early Childhood Education

The UCN’s Early Childhood Education program is growing to accommodate the need.  


The UCN Recently received a 5.5 million dollar grant to expand services.


The 40-hour program has already been upgraded in The Pas, Swan River, and Thompson, and distance options are now available.


Laura Ayres, ECE Program Coordinator, talks about the different levels of the program.


"We start with our 40-hour course in the fall and winter.  This is required for all childcare assistance.  During their first six months of working in childcare, you can then step up to our two-year diploma program that leads to a provincial EC2 designation.


"And then after about 1 to 2 years of experience, you can take our 18-month evening distance program that will lead to an EC three designation with the province.  And this is suggested for all directors of childcare facilities."


UCN’s ECE Programs will be extended to Grand Rapids, Norway House, and Pukatawagan, and they are still looking for one more community to host the program.
