The Indigenous Early Childhood Education (IECE) program provides students with the skills and knowledge to provide quality care and education for young children. The IECE certificate honours Indigenous ways of knowing and being by placing local and traditional child development practices at the center of the program and by preparing Early Childhood Educators to work with children in the community in which they reside.

The IECE certificate program encourages students to examine both the role of the child, family and the educator focussing on concepts of belonging, learning, and sharing to strengthen identity through culture. The program supports the Early Childhood Educator in developing strategies for guiding and caring that support healthy social-emotional development for young children.
