Welcome message

Judith K. Bernhard, Program Director
M.A. program in Early Childhood Studies

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the master’s program in Early Childhood Studies – a program that finds its roots in the changing Canadian population.

As students, you reflect this country’s diversity. Not only do you hail from a variety of fields and professional experiences, but you also speak the languages of Canada’s many ethno-cultural communities.
