Essential Requirements for Field Placement
Field Placement is physically demanding. It involves the following tasks:
- carrying and lifting children and objects
- responding quickly to emergency situations which may involve assisting with first aid and/or CPR and Epipen
- physically intervening when children are aggressive with materials or other children
- monitor the children’s safety, nutrition, health and general wellness.
While every effort is being made to accommodate individual student’s learning needs, the field placements require more flexibility on the student’s part as we are invited guests of the agencies. The needs of the children and centre are the first priority. There are five (5) placements in the ECE Online program and these are to be completed in five (5) different childcare facilities.
Entrance into the second year of the program is dependent upon credit match from previous post-secondary degree/diploma education. A meeting with the Program Coordinator is required to assess and approve the candidate’s standing.
