Northern Lakes College and Keyano College are bringing back the Early Learning and Child Care Diploma program to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Keyano currently offers an Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Certificate through a full-time eight-month program over two semesters. The certificate program enables graduates to work in licensed daycares, out-of-school care programs, and preschool programs.
Earlier this year Northern Lakes College proposed a partnership to bring the diploma program back to the Wood Buffalo region through an online delivery option. ELCC Diploma program graduates are qualified to supervise work in a licensed childcare centre, out-of-school programs and preschools.
