Saskatchewan Child Care Training Requirements:  

In Saskatchewan, all staff working 65 hours/month or more must be certified and meet the training requirements. The amount of training for entry-level staff varies from 30-120 hours. Saskatchewan uses a certification system. Those who meet provincial qualifications may be certified as an ECE I, ECE II, or ECE III. In addition to certification hours, Saskatchewan providers are required to complete 6 hours of professional development annually. 

Certification requirements are based on course hours in four categories: 

  • ECE I requires 40 hours in child development, programming, and relationships. 

  • ECE II requires 120 hours in child development, relationships, and related courses and 160 hours in programming.

  • ECE III requires 160 hours in child development, 240 hours in programming, 280 hours in relationships, and 380 hours in related courses.

There are no requirements for ongoing education or professional development for Kindergarten teachers who have their Saskatchewan teacher certification.
