The new Code of Ethics
and Standards of Practice (2017) came into effect on July 1, 2017. All
registered early childhood educators (RECEs) were mailed a copy. The
2017 edition replaces the original version, published in 2011.
The new Code and Standards reflects many
significant changes the profession has undergone since 2011. It places
greater emphasis on leadership, relationships, well-being, learning
environments, current pedagogical approaches and the value of
communication and collaboration. It also provides more clarity on use of
the protected title, the duty to report and dual relationships, and
addresses the use of technology.
If you have any questions about the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice or
any inquiries related to the practice of registered early childhood
educators, please contact the Professional Practice Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* The College of Early Childhood Educators provides information and communication in an accessible manner when requested. If you require an accessible format and/or communication support, please contact a College staff member or the College at email@example.com.
