About the Program

The Bachelor of Early Learning Program Development is a four-year co-op degree program that will provide students with an applied understanding of enhanced education in early learning program development in the human services. The program will prepare graduates for a number of progressive careers that support children, youth and families in the areas of curriculum implementation and co-ordination, program development and co-ordination, and social policy work.

With a focus on preparing reflective professionals, the program will offer students opportunities to develop strong critical thinking and professional communication skills that will enable them to work successfully in an inter-professional team. Program design, implementation and evaluation will be considered within a framework of research informed practice, population focus, and social inclusion.
