Early Childhood Leadership is a four-year baccalaureate program that prepares graduates to guide and lead curriculum and pedagogy in Ontario s early childhood settings. Throughout the four-year program, the academic pillars are grounded in two major fields where applicants have the opportunity to explore theory and research: 1) Human Development This field adopts a life-course perspective that incorporates: developmental psychology population health neurobiology sociology anthropology Multiple perspectives on the context of children s lives and their early learning and development into adulthood create a knowledge base for early childhood research, policy and practice. Students have opportunities to consider and generate research across disciplines that supports leadership for quality early childhood programs. 2) Teaching and Learning This field includes many dimensions of pedagogical and curriculum leadership in early childhood programs. A thorough overview of curriculum planning and design is the foundation for the development of early childhood program leadership capacity. THE AREAS OF FOCUS ACROSS THE FOUR YEARS ARE AS FOLLOWS: YEAR 1: Understanding Children, Early Childhood Programs and Foundation Professional Skills YEAR 2: Evidence-based Understanding and Curriculum and Infrastructure Design YEAR 3: Leadership for Quality Skills and Professional Specialization YEAR 4: Advanced Inquiry and Preparation for the Workforce or Further Study This program is delivered in an applied learning environment. Case studies, demonstrations and practice opportunities are integral to most courses. FIELD STUDY OPTIONS Students have four field experiences, including a 14-week full-time internship, that are aligned with the progressive complexity of the course content. Students will be expected to demonstrate abilities to apply their learning in early childhood programs, translating theory into practice. Notes: Students must submit proof of a satisfactory medical examination upon entering the program. Field placement is a mandatory and complex component of the program. Should accommodation issues arise, a Special Needs Consultant may be called upon to assist the applicant in determining whether she/he can meet the requirements necessary for safe caregiving for young children. In compliance with requests from our student placement partners, all students in this program must have a police reference check completed before their field placement. These reference checks, which can take up to four months, are done to protect the clientele of these agencies, who are considered vulnerable persons under the law. The fees for the reference checks vary and must be paid by the student. Students are responsible for ensuring that the check covers appropriateness for individuals being employed and/or volunteering who will be working with vulnerable person(s). Students who are unable to provide a clear police reference check may be unable to complete their field placement and, therefore, be unable to complete the program. Students must complete a standard first aid course prior to beginning field placement. PROGRAM STANDARDS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES A degree program must meet a substantial and common set of learning outcomes that are critical to programs within a degree level educational environment. These include: Four Degree Standards, and the knowledge and skills expectations under each of these, as published by the Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board.

A breadth requirement that includes coherent and substantive non-core subjects/courses which contribute to the achievement of broader skills and knowledge beyond the core subject area, such as critical thinking and communication skills, knowledge of society and culture, etc. View degree program standards and outcomes 3, by program.

International students: Visit the International Fees and Related Costs 2 page for more information. Early Childhood Education (Consecutive Diploma/Degree) is a fouryear program that leads to both an ECE diploma from George Brown College and a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree from Ryerson University. As a student in this program, you will spend the first two years earning your Early Childhood Education (ECE) diploma at the Sally Horsfall Eaton Centre for Studies in Community Health, at George Brown's Ryerson campus (co-operatively managed with George Brown), and the latter two years completing your ECE degree at Ryerson. This program offers some distinct advantages: College-level tuition fees, rather than higher university fees, for the first two years. Classes with George Brown College faculty, who are national leaders in applied ECE education. Practical training at one of George Brown s nine child care lab schools in Toronto. Enter directly into third year of the Ryerson degree program. Graduate with both an ECE diploma and degree, which offers expanded career scope and direction. Our system of alternating blocks of classroom theory and field practice will give you the knowledge and skills you need to work with with infant, toddler, preschool and school-aged children. This program trains students to work with children aged six weeks to 12 years, in a variety of early childhood education settings. FIELD STUDY OPTIONS Each semester is divided into blocks of seven weeks. One block is for academic studies, the other is for field placements, where students have the opportunity to work with children of all ages in a variety of settings. Notes: Students must submit proof of a satisfactory medical examination upon entering the program. Field placement is a mandatory and complex component of the program. Should accommodation issues arise, a Special Needs Consultant may be called upon to assist the applicant in determining whether she/he can meet the requirements necessary for safe caregiving for young children. In compliance with requests from our student placement partners, all students in this program must have a police reference check completed before their field placement. These reference checks, which can take up to four months, are done to protect the clientele of these agencies, who are considered vulnerable persons under the law. The fees for the reference checks vary and must be paid by the student. Students are responsible for ensuring that the check covers appropriateness for individuals being employed and/or volunteering who will be working with vulnerable person(s). Students who are unable to provide a clear police reference check may be unable to complete their field placement and, therefore, be unable to complete the program. Students must complete a standard first aid course prior to beginning field placement. PROGRAM STANDARDS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES Program standards apply to all similar programs of instruction offered by colleges across the province. Each program standard for a postsecondary program of instruction includes the following elements: Vocational standard (the vocationally specific learning outcomes which apply to the program in question), Essential employability skills (the essential employability skills learning outcomes which apply to all programs of instruction), and General education requirement (the requirement for general education in postsecondary programs of instruction).

16 The vocational and essential employability skills 3 components of program standards are expressed in terms of learning outcomes. Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved and verified.

Narmin Pirani (2004 graduate, Early Childhood Education) Narmin Pirani was finishing her bachelor s degree in sociology when she took a job in a hospital child care centre to help pay her bills. That s where she found her true calling. "I discovered that I loved working with little kids. It came naturally to me, and I knew it was the kind of job that I d look forward to every day," she remembers. Narmin knew she'd need training if she wanted to get serious. When she looked at the options, George Brown College's Early Childhood Education program interested her right away, particularly the seven weeks of in-class followed by the seven weeks of co-op. "The courses at George Brown sounded more academic compared to the other ECE programs I was considering, but the main thing that appealed (to me) was the amount of field placement," says Narmin. "We learned how to handle every possible situation in the classroom, but then when you have to use that information for real, you discover all the things that can't be taught in a book. There s no better way to learn."
