Building on the foundations of the Educational Assistant Certificate, learning in this program will explore the historical and philosophical influences on current best practices in school-age educational programming, examine the sociology of the Canadian family, develop specialized practice in supporting programming for children with exceptionalities and developmental disabilities, expand understanding and strategies in the areas of mathematics and language learning, and strengthen insights and approaches for working effectively as a contributing team member in planning and supporting school-age learning. This program offers a combination of theoretical instruction along with practical experience in an educational setting.
Practicum locations vary. Students may be required to travel to practicum sites and are responsible for arranging their own transportation, accommodation and childcare.
