Seats still available for Early Childhood Care and Education certificate part-time option

Earn your Early Childhood Care and Education certificate while you work, with NIC’s new, part-time evening and weekend program, starting January 2019 in the Comox Valley.

This part-time option is a great opportunity to meet friends and colleagues, all while you specialize your skills and apply theory to practice working with children ages 30 months to five years old in a variety of care and learning settings.

Those who apply can access new financial support, including a student bursary of up to $4,000 per semester or a $5,000 workforce development bursary available to current early childhood educators (ECEs) who upgrade or complete their credential.

Graduates from the program who go on to work at licensed childcare facilities will also see a $2 per hour wage increase by 2020.
