About PSW Program
PSWs provide care, support and assistance to clients who are aging, chronically ill and/or have physical/mental disabilities. There’s never been a
better time than now to become a PSW and play a vital role in assisting clients and their families with the many tasks for which they require assistance.
What You Will Learn In The Classroom:
The PSW program is designed to teach you how to effectively provide care and assistance to clients and families in order to live fulfilling lives in their communities. As a student of this program, you will develop a broad range of abilities emphasizing value, sensitivity and respect for the individuality of each client. You will also have the opportunity to participate in cross disciplinary and/or inter-professional learning opportunities with other members of the care and service team.
What You Will Learn In The Labs:
The PSW program includes a full hands-on lab where students practice common tasks of a PSW such as: meal preparation, household management, aiding with bathing and other aspects of personal hygiene, assisting with daily living activities and errands, administering medications, feeding, performing bedside and personal care, assisting with mobility, increasing the clients’ comfort and safety, communicating clearly and compassionately with clients, reporting accurately and performing light housekeeping duties.
PSW students will also complete two extern- ships in a workplace environment. The first consists of 200 hours under the direct supervision of a clinical instructor at a long-term care facility. The second consists of 110 hours of practical job experience in the community. Field experiences often lead directly to employment after graduation.

The program provides individuals with knowledge, skills and experience that are essential to succeed as childcare workers and early childcare assistants. The program aims at training individuals who wish to work as Early Childcare Assistants.
Early Childcare Assistants have the opportunity to work and interact closely with children, their parents, child educators, and other childcare providers. They nurture and supervise children and facilitate their social, emotional, physical and intellectual development through a wide range of educational and interactive activities. They also assist in daily operations of childcare centres, thus continuously growing and learning in the process.
Students are required to complete two practicums as part of their curriculum: The first practicum is focused on infant and toddlers while the second practicum is focused on preschool. Both practicums are of 245 hours each. The practicum component of the curriculum provides the student with an opportunity to incorporate classroom theory into a real work situation.
It allows the student the ability to demonstrate, evaluate and refine skills needed by a professional in an early child care environment. It provides a mentorship for the student to observe and interact with other early childhood professionals.
