Early Years Centre Designation

Early Years Centre Designation

Prince Edward Island is recognized across Canada as a leader in Early Learning and Child Care.  The Government of Prince Edward Island is committed to the continued development of our successful Early Learning and Child Care System.  A key component of the system are the Early Years Centres, with 75 now active across the province. 

As part of system and service growth, a new open application process for additional Early Years Centres has been developed, with applications for designation reviewed on an ongoing basis. 

How do I apply for an EYC designation? 

Licensed early childhood centres are invited to apply to the Department of Education and Early Years to receive a Probationary Early Years Centre designation at any time. Applicants for an early childhood centre license may also concurrently apply for a Probationary Early Years Centre designation.  

More information about the application process and requirements will be provided soon.
