The public register informs parents, employers and the public if an RECE is a member of the College. Providing this information assures the public that individuals practising the profession of early childhood education are qualified, competent and accountable.
The College can help if you want to find out more information about the ethical and professional standards that guide our members, registered early childhood educators. Find out what to do if you have a concern about an RECE.
You can also read Connexions, the College's publication and our annual reports online.
The Child Care and Early Years Act now requires that a parent handbook must be available to any parent considering whether to enrol their child in a child care centre licensed by the Ministry of Education and/or any parent of a child who receives child care in the child care centre.
Employers may wish to include information about the College, its public register and RECEs.
A one-page handout in English is available here.
