RAC ACS Early Childhood Education

ACS - Early Childhood Education

The RAC Early Childhood Education (for Indigenous Candidates)* program is intended for First Nations, Inuit and Métis people who have practical experience as a child care worker or child care technician and who wish to have this experience recognized by obtaining an Attestation of College Studies (ACS).

The experience may have been acquired in public or private daycare centres, in family daycare services or in school daycare services within the community or elsewhere.

*Program available online and offered in English by Vanier College.

French language requirements

As of fall 2023, as defined by the regulations of the Ministère de la Langue française, to obtain an ACS, candidates must demonstrate sufficient knowledge of French, by means of a standardized test, if they are taught in English.

For those interested in enrolling in a program offered in English, certain situations may attest that they meet the French language knowledge requirements (e.g., having studied in French, holding a diploma, etc.). If you hold a Certificate of Eligibility to receive instruction in English (CEO), acquired at primary or secondary level in the Quebec school system, you do not need to meet the French language requirements.
