Field placements

You’ll have the chance to transfer your learning into practice by completing three different field placements at Sheridan’s highly acclaimed childcare centres, full-day kindergarten classrooms or other early learning settings. There’s even an opportunity for international placements, which may include Hong Kong, Grenada or St. Vincent.
