Standard III: Safety, Health and Well-Being

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Standards Matter April Focus

RE​CEs intentionally create and maintain environments that support children's play and learning as well as contribute to a sense of belonging and overall well-being. They ensure that the environment is safe and accessible for all children and families. They also ensure that the environment reflects the values and diversity of the community. (Standard III: A, Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice)

The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice provides the foundation of practice for all Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECEs). As the profession evolves, it's important to continually revisit the Code and Standards to ensure you understand your professional and ethical responsibilities and reflect on how you’re​ applying them in your daily practice.

This page will provide you with new resources, webinars led by subject matter leaders, videos, and more to inspire thinking and reinforce the following important practice elements:

  • Leadership
  • Relationships
