This program gives the student the skills and occupational competencies necessary in the industry today based upon the Ministry for Children and Family Development approved curriculum. The diploma program provides the content of the Basic program (3-5 years) in addition to content specific to Infant and Toddlers which expands the age appropriateness training to birth (0- 3 years).

Students in this program will develop a broad range of skills through the study and practice of certified courses in order to develop and lead daily age-appropriate activities for children aimed to help promote social, emotional, physical, cognitive and early literacy development.
