Employment Potential

Opportunities for employment have expanded as society's need for childcare increases. Currently, there is a significant shortage of trained ECEs in Manitoba. Graduates have found positions in daycare centres, nursery schools, infant care centres, family resource centres, and school-age programs. With experience and continuing education, some graduates may progress to positions of directors of children's centres.

Note: As of October 1991, diploma status is required for classification as an Early Childhood Educator Level 2. Manitoba's provincial day care regulations stipulate that two-thirds of all staff in full-time Manitoba daycare centres must be at this level.
