UNB launches feasibility study into an Early Childhood Bachelor of Education degree for Atlantic Canadians via an online model of delivery.

The Faculty of Education at the University of New Brunswick has partnered with the Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation and the Jimmy Pratt Family Foundation to conduct a feasibility study into an online B.Ed. degree in early childhood education.

Dr. Ann Sherman, Dean of Education says: “Children in Atlantic Canada deserve well qualified early learning educators who have the opportunity to blend teaching experience with new learning. An online program, that continues the work of partnering colleges, will increase the quality of professional growth opportunities for these educators. We are pleased to share this unique collaboration with other universities and colleges as well as the private philanthropic foundations. This partnership demonstrates the importance of young children and the growing understanding that high quality education for them is essential”.
