Langara awarded $2.67M for applied research in early childhood education


Langara College has received a $2.67M boost from the Government of Canada to enhance applied research in early childhood education. The three-year funding will support a project focused on exploring how virtual and immersive learning can prepare early childhood educators to work more inclusively with Indigenous, racialized, and diverse children and families. The project will be completed in collaboration with members of the Musqueam First Nation and YMCA BC’s Early Years and Family Development Branch. “The project has the potential to not only impact families in our community, but the field of early childhood education across Canada,” said Langara Provost and VP Academic Margaret Heldman.
