Main Campus

Children ask lots of questions about a wide variety of topics. At Mount Aloysius College, we understand children (and teachers too). We know you will need a broad knowledge base in order to answer a child’s endless questions and to create instructive and engaging activities for young, developing minds.

At Mount Aloysius College, our Early Childhood Education Program offers balance. You will be exposed to both general education courses and classes that provide student teachers with skills and information needed for this rewarding and vital profession.
