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 Early Years Centres, with 54 now active across the province. 

As part of system and service growth, Government has announced the establishment of additional Early Years Centres, and the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning is currently seeking applications from existing Early Childhood Centres interested in Early Years Centre Designation (EYC). The Department will be designating up to eight new Early Years Centres over the next 6 months.
