Careers in Child Care for High School Students
For high school students who want to pursue child care as a career, Alberta Human Services provides a $2,500 High School Child Care Scholarship to attend post-secondary programs in early learning and child care education.
To be eligible for the scholarship, students must have successfully completed high school credit courses CCS 3110, 3120, 3130, 3140, and 3150 through Career and Technologies Studies (previously CMH 2050 and CMH 3050), or take the free, online Child Care Orientation Course, while in high school.
Students must register in and attend an early learning and child care certificate, diploma or degree program and sign a service commitment agreeing to work in a licensed or approved child care program for one year.
