Manitoba Education and Advanced Learning

The Early Childhood Education Unit provides leadership and support to school divisions in the area of early learning for children up to age 8 years. Our focus is birth to eight since this is the most rapid period of development in human life. Through a collaborative approach, the unit partners with school divisions, other government departments (provincial, federal), Early Learning and Child Care, educational stakeholder groups, and parents to promote developmentally appropriate programming and services that help to prepare children for successful school entry and optimal learning in the early years.
