Code and Standards
Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECEs) are required to practice according to the College’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
Practice guidelines, practice notes and case studies are developed to support RECEs in their practice approach.
Practice guidelines communicate the expectations of RECEs as outlined in the Code and Standards, and how those expectations might be applied in practice.
Practice notes present a brief overview of important topics within the profession and provide supporting information to strengthen the reader’s understanding of those topics.
Professional advisories are developed for RECEs. They communicate the important legal requirements that RECEs must know and understand.
The Resource and Reflection Guide for the Professional Advisory on the Duty to Report supports RECEs’ understanding of the importance of reporting concerns related to the safety and well-being of a child.
