The Government of British Columbia is adding 147 early childhood educator (ECE) seats at eight postsecondary institutions through an investment of $1.32M. The seats will be offered at Northern Lights College, Okanagan College, Thompson Rivers University, College of the Rockies, Selkirk College, Camosun College, North Island College, and Vancouver Island University. They include full- and part-time studies, online learning, and specialty programs. “We’re building a future where child care is a core service that’s available to any family that wants it,” said Katrina Chen, BC Minister of State for Child Care. “Expanding the number of training spaces for early childhood educators supports that future, gives child a strong start and helps families get ahead.” BC| Castlegar News (Selkirk) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
