The requirements for education of staff in full-time child care centres varies across Canada.
For centre directors, the requirements vary from no training to two-year Early Childhood Education (ECE) diplomas or post ECE diploma education.
For centre staff, most provinces and territories require a proportion of the staff to have formal education – although in two jurisdictions, no training is required.
