Numerous employment opportunities
Did you know that early childhood educators are some of the most sought-after college-level positions in the NWT? The brand-new Early Childhood Education program meets the requirements of the NWT Department of Education, Culture and Employment. The diploma leads to positions in the school environment, including preschools (daycare, preschool centre) and pre-kindergarten.
A schedule adapted to your reality
Courses have been designed to give you the flexibility to organize your schedule so you can keep your job during regular childcare hours. The training is offered both online (asynchronous courses available at any time) and at a distance (synchronous courses during some weekends with professionals in the field).
Collège Nordique offers you personalized support throughout your studies, whether it be for registration, computer assistance, pedagogical assistance or even finding internships in the NWT. You will also have access to the College’s classrooms and computer equipment.
