Advocacy and Social Responsibility
Early childhood educators are patient, caring and innovative as they care for children in their earliest development years. They help children thrive and discover their potential while cultivating their curiosity and autonomy. But as society changes and children’s environment changes, early childhood educators have to continue learning and professionally develop their skills.
At the College, our Early Childhood Education programs offer current, meaningful theory courses and a variety of practicum experiences to support students' knowledge and understanding of the professional practice. The strong values of inclusion and respect for all children and families are embedded throughout the curriculum in the diploma, certificate, and post-basic Special Needs citation programs. Invest in the generations of tomorrow and help support the advocates for Children's rights.
The field of early childhood education continues to get more and more exciting to me the more I learn. My appreciation for the field and my commitment to it have only grown throughout my time thus far at Langara. I continue to be inspired by the faculty and am truly honoured to receive this award. This award will help me as I continue in my education at Langara and beyond. It will support me in my dream of opening my own outdoor preschool one day. Thank you so much for your generous support. - Maria, recipient of the Patricia Mackenzie Scholarship.
Over the last few years, the number of ECE educators has risen and often these educators lack the funding to keep up with development trends and take care of their mental health.

Over the last few years, the number of ECE educators has risen. Not only is there a need for mental health support but there is also a need for continuous professional development to ensure that they are up to date with policies, frameworks, resources and knowledge of child behaviour, growth and development. But professional development requires funding and the mental capacity to be able to complete them. Often times these educators lack the funding to keep up with trends and take care of their mental health.
