Careers:Early Childhood Educators and Assistants


Are you an individual with a passion for making a difference in the lives of young children? Then we invite you to join us at Lambton College where you will be supported by our caring faculty as you gain the skills and knowledge necessary to become a competent Early Childhood Educator. Our two-year program blends classroom theory and hands-on practical experience both in our beautiful new state of the art classroom and through community field placements. This dynamic combination gives students the knowledge and skills to work with young children aged 0-12 years in a variety of settings, while preparing them for this in-demand profession.

Students graduate with over 600 hours of practical experience through placements in child care centres (infant, toddler and preschool), drop-in centres, Indigenous child care centres, as well as kindergarten classrooms. Students also have the unique opportunity to complete a placement in our on-site EarlyON Child and Family Centre. Our on-site Parent & Professional Resource Centre offers valuable resources for curriculum planning, research, and professional development.
