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 supervisors and directors of child care centres.

Note: The Early Childhood Education diploma allows graduates to apply for an Early Childhood Educator II classification through the Province of Manitoba, who stipulates that two-thirds of all staff in full-time child care centres must have this classification.
