Dear 1st Year Student:
I am pleased to welcome you to the 2017-2018 academic year at Nova Scotia College of Early Childhood Education. You have chosen a program with an excellent reputation whose roots go back over 45 years to the beginnings of early childhood education as a profession and academic discipline in Nova Scotia. The faculty, staff and I hope you will find this year engrossing, stimulating and challenging. You are entering a professional program that will challenge and change you profoundly over the next two years. Below you will find some information to help you prepare for your first year of study.
Please note: you will not be able to begin this program without the Child Abuse Registry and the Vulnerable Sector Check completed and submitted to NSCECE by August 1, 2017.
