MTI Community College specializes in teaching the Reggio Emilia approach to childcare. The Reggio Emilia approach is based on following the children's interests, involving them in hands-on, multi-sensory activities and active exploration. The teacher works with the children as a guide and co-explorer using interests and abilities as a blueprint.
When you attend classes at MTI, you receive individualized service and specialized training due to our small class size settings. Our approach is to provide you with knowledge-based education and mentorship using highly qualified instructional staff.
After you graduate with a Childcare Assistant Certificate you can work in childcare settings for 3- to 5-year olds. The courses in this program are transferable to MTI's Ministry approved Early Childhood Care & Education Certificate Program.
