The YMCA is accepting applications in its Teaching for Tomorrow – Early Childhood Educators Certification Program (the “Program”) which starts in October 3, 2022. Deadline for applications is September 2, 2022.
In collaboration with College of the North Atlantic (“CNA”), participants in the Program will complete a Certificate of Applied Arts in Early Childhood Education program (one year program) (“ECE Certificate”). Upon successful completion of the academic program, participants will receive their ECE Certificate and will be eligible to receive their Level I Child Care Services Certification in preschool and school-age care (working with children ages 18 months to 12 years). They will also be supported by the YMCA to secure employment as an ECE at a local child care centre in Happy Valley – Goose Bay (“HVGB”) (where possible).
There are 10 spaces available in the Program, which is delivered at no cost to participants.
