About the Program
The Bachelor of Early Learning Program Development is a four-year co-op degree program that will provide students with an applied understanding of enhanced education in early learning program development in the human services. The program will prepare graduates for a number of progressive careers that support children, youth and families in the areas of curriculum implementation and co-ordination, program development and co-ordination, and social policy work.
With a focus on preparing reflective professionals, the program will offer students opportunities to develop strong critical thinking and professional communication skills that will enable them to work successfully in an inter-professional team. Program design, implementation and evaluation will be considered within a framework of research informed practice, population focus, and social inclusion.
Throughout the program, students will experience authentic, situational learning opportunities that highlight the links between theory and practice in engaging and meaningful ways. They will be challenged to consider multiple theoretical perspectives as a lens to understanding social policy and determining promising professional practices that shape social and educational programs.

Students with criminal records are advised to meet with the program chair for academic counselling to determine program suitability. Offences under the Criminal Code and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act of Canada:
