School of Early Childhood


    George Brown has been monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak in Toronto, and around the world. While we don’t have any reported cases on campus or in our Child Care Centre facilities, your health and safety is our top priority. That’s why, as a precaution, we will be closing our George Brown College Child Care Centres until further notice.

    Choose a career that never gets old

    The School of Early Childhood offers certificate, diploma and degree programs that can help prepare you to succeed in a wide variety of careers in Early Childhood Education (ECE).

    Our programs combine classroom learning, with practical, hands-on experience  experiential learning opportunities at one of our 12 college-managed child care lab schools or with one of our Greater Toronto Area service agency partners. These field placement opportunities help you build confidence in your skills and give you practical experience in a real-world setting.
