The Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education gives formal recognition to those graduate students who have undertaken concentrated research and study concerning the education of young children (birth to age eight). Master's and doctoral students may specialize in early childhood education and have this specialization noted on their transcripts.

The diploma can be taken concurrently with the Master's (MEd) or Doctoral (PhD) degrees or as a stand-alone non-degree diploma.
