The DBDLI is pleased to announce that it is entering into discussions with Jane Norman College (Truro) to offer a cohort in Early Childhood Education Diploma Program which will include an Africentric focus.

A maximum of 20 students who are officially admitted into the programme by Jane Norman College (Truro) will be offered full scholarships (tuition & textbooks) from the DBDLI.

The Early Childhood Education Diploma Program prepares graduates to work in a variety of early learning environments such as the pre-primary programs and family support programs, preschools, playschools, and daycares. For details on entrance requirements, please refer to

We are interested in receiving expressions of interest for a customized programme from students of African descent who are eligible to apply. As there is still an identified need for early childhood educators, we are continuing to accept responses to our indication of interest.  Please complete the following form.  We will send updates, as available.  An information session will follow.

The Cohort is conditional on enrolling a minimum of 15 students and securing funding.
