Program Overview

In the Early Childhood Education program you will learn how to help young children develop their physical, social, and intellectual skills, their self-confidence and imagination.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • Learn how to support, encourage and promote a young child’s growth and development through observation and implementation of creative play based learning experiences.
  • At Fleming College, Early Childhood Education students have unique opportunities to engage in active classroom learning environments that equip students with the skills and knowledge required to work with children (birth to 12 years).
  • All courses are based on a philosophy that encourages inclusive practices and partnerships with families. An emphasis is placed on applying what’s learned in the classroom to real–world settings, preparing students to start their careers as early childhood educators.

WHY CHOOSE FLEMING

  • A smaller program size means more individual attention in the classroom and customized field placements.
  • The program is designed to provide varied and extensive applied learning opportunities -from courses like Interactive Learning with Children and Families and Early Learning Practicums in semesters two, three and four. An interactive online course and a teamwork project “Creating Your Own Childcare” in the final semester consolidates and concludes your ECE learning.
  • Fleming offers support services to assist students in the further development of fundamental life and learning skills important to successfully complete the program. These skills include being able to work independently, participate in a team, organizational abilities, taking initiative and developing good work habits.

WORK PLACEMENT

  • In semesters two and four you'll put theoretical education to work in a child care environment. In semester three, ECE teams will implement and run an Interactive Children’s Program, overseen by ECE faculty in the Peterborough community. This will prepare you for semester four, when you will be pulling it all together in your final block field placements.
  • A background working with young children (ages newborn to 12) in licensed child care centres is strongly recommended as a prerequisite for field placement.
