Teacher was excellent and coaching modules were well organized. George Brown campus is in the heart of Toronto. Feels like a real college with many student services, restaurants and places to study. I did my course online but I am going to continue in-person as I miss the deeper interaction with professor and other learners.

This program is all hands-on all the time. The lessons and strategies I learned in the classroom helped prepare me for the exact challenges I faced in the classroom. Instructors were dedicated and empathetic. Best of all, there were more available field placements than there were students. Early childhood educators can't go wrong at George Brown in my opinion.
