Early Childhood Care & Education Registry

The NIC Advantage
- Graduate employment ready and enter a high demand industry
- Qualify as an ECCE Assistant with select courses
- Transfer opportunites to continue learning with bachelor degrees such as UVic's Bachelor of Child and Youth Care
The way that the courses are laid out, the instructors start you out with the basic
philosophies of educating children, and the practicums helped so much. I had amazing mentors who really
prepared me. The NIC training gives you the skills to work in the field in a really holistic way.
