Investment of $9 million for early childhood training

The province, which made the announcement Monday in a news release, says the investment stems from its commitment to improving the quality of the early years and child care sector.

For this new program, the province has partnered with several partners, including Collège Mathieu, to provide free early childhood education training opportunities (ECE).

The Director General of Collège Mathieu, Francis Kasongo, welcomes this collaboration between the Saskatchewan Department of Education and Collège Mathieu.

According to him, she will also contribute to the professional development and enrichment of anyone, Francophone or Francophile, who is already working or considering a career in the field of early childhood education.

Two other educational institutions, Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies (SIIT), will also benefit from this funding.

Provincial Education Minister Dustin Duncan said early childhood educators positively impact the learning and development of Saskatchewan’s youngest learners.

Early childhood educators, regulated child care providers and child care aides will be given priority for registration.

Other participants wishing to become early childhood educators or open their own family day care centers are also welcome to register.

Funding for training early childhood educators is part of a larger initiative by the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan to implement a pan-Canadian early learning and child care system .

The Pan-Canadian Agreement on Early Learning and Child Care between Canada and Saskatchewan, signed a year ago, provides a federal investment of nearly $1.1 billion over five years.
