Shape the future. Experience the magic and mystery of the world through the eyes of a child. As an educator, you’ll nurture children and inspire them to explore their surroundings. A BA in Early Childhood and Elementary Education gives you an educational foundation for teaching children aged two to 12.

In a curriculum that combines theory and fieldwork, you’ll have the opportunity to observe experienced teachers and teach classes as a student teacher. You’ll follow a core education curriculum and take electives in the teaching of values, second languages and human, social and natural sciences. You’ll also:
  • Examine Canadian social policy and its impact on children and families
  • Study the physical, emotional and psychological development of children aged two to 12
  • Study educational psychology and philosophy
  • Learn methods of teaching first and second languages, mathematics and social sciences

Our students graduate ready to enter Quebec classrooms, and are eligible for certification from the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport.
