Overview

The part-time Early Childhood Education Diploma Program emphasizes a learning process which is aimed at developing competent professional Early Childhood Educators with effective verbal and written communication skills. The College continues to provide resources and support to students as they progress through the program and endeavours to ensure currency in the curriculum.

The early childhood education principle of supporting and enhancing the development of the whole child is the basis for this program. This includes the social, emotional, physical and cognitive developmental domains of children from infancy to adolescence. Specific teaching skills and strategies are explored, demonstrated, and practiced in the Seneca classroom as well as in a variety of field placement opportunities.

Research methods and child study techniques are emphasized and integrated into all Early Childhood Education courses. These include observational techniques, assessment, and individual and group planning, curriculum development and self-reflection.

Field placement experiences are provided in a variety of Early Childhood Education environments including nursery schools, day-care centres and various community agencies during day time hours and are a required component of this diploma program. All field placement students must be supervised by a registered Early Childhood Educator.

If you've completed an undergraduate degree or three-year diploma from a recognized postsecondary institution in Ontario or have a degree evaluated for Canadian equivalency, you may be eligible to earn your accelerated Early Childhood Education diploma in three terms.

Please note the Early Childhood Education program curriculum has changed for Winter 2024. For students who started the program prior to Winter 2024, please contact Georgette.bigelow@senecapolytechnic.ca for more information.

Credit for Prior Learning

Prior Learning Assessment

Earn college credits for what you already know.
Prior Learning Assessment is a method of assessing and recognizing learning that is equal to college level learning, but has been gained outside a traditional classroom (through work experience, volunteering, outside study, etc.). If you can prove that the knowledge you have gained meets the outcomes of a Seneca course, then credit will be awarded.

How does the PLA process work?
Prior Learning is demonstrated through a "challenge" process. The process measures learning through a variety of methods which may include tests, portfolio assessment, interviews, demonstrations, essays, and work samples. The method used will be determined in consultation with a Program Coordinator.
For more information and to determine if you are eligible for PLA, please call the Program Coordinator.

The process may take from 6 to 8 weeks.

Note: Not all courses can be challenged. For more information go to PLA website or contact your Program Coordinator.
