Tradition. Innovation. Excellence.

Mothercraft College of Early Childhood Education is Registered as a Career College under the Ontario Career Colleges Act, 2005.

As a highly specialized post-secondary institution, our Diploma programs offer small class sizes to allow for individualized student support and a collegial learning environment.

We exclusively train early learning professionals and offer an accelerated, intensive ECE Diploma program for both Canadian students and internationally trained individuals that is recognized by Ontario's College of Early Childhood Educators (CECE). This means that Mothercraft College of Early Childhood Education ECE graduates are eligible to become Registered Early Childhood Educators and expands their employment opportunities. Our graduates have obtained work as teachers, supervisors, coordinators, and teaching assistants in a variety of early learning settings including child care centres, specialized settings for children with special needs, after-school programs, nursery schools, resource programs, EarlyON Centres and elementary schools.

Additionally, applicants to the program can apply for Prior Learning Assessment Recognition. Partnerships in this area include articulation agreements with CIMT College and Computek College which provide advanced standing to their National Association of Career Colleges' Early Childhood Educator Assistant program graduates.

As new initiatives such as the Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres and the Child Care Early Years Act and regulations are implemented, the demand for ECEs is expected to continue to grow. Financial assistance is available to eligible students.
