Student Placements
In addition to the regular staff of the centre, throughout the school year, Confederation College students who are studying Early Childhood Education are welcomed into our programs to complete their placements. This benefits not only the students and the staff, but the children, as students bring in a new perspective and new ideas for educational activities within the program.
