CapilanoU announces new Centre for Childhood Studies

January 17, 2022
Capilano University has announced that it is creating a new Centre for Childhood Studies on its North Vancouver campus. The centre will more than double CapilanoU’s existing childcare spaces, and will feature new studio space, study and research labs, classrooms, and faculty offices. It will also provide an enhanced environment for students in the institution’s early childhood educators program and increase the number of available practicum placements. The centre is funded by $9.46M from the Government of British Columbia, a $5M campaign launched by CapilanoU, and other gifts from individuals and organizations. “The COVID-19 pandemic increased societal awareness and value for quality childcare, and Capilano University is well-placed to meet the growing needs of childhood educators and local families,” said CapilanoU President Paul Dangerfield.
