Early Childhood Development course and requirements

A while ago (and sorry it took so long to get to this!), I had a dayhome provider ask what I knew about the different options for taking Early Childhood Education courses in Edmonton. Luckily, there are a number of options, all of which will give you a level of certification that will allow you personal and professional growth, and hopefully be fun to do as well! After all, learning is fun!

After some initial research, these are my findings.  I hope it helps you to have the information all in one place.
