Only registered members of the College of Early Childhood Educators can legally practise the profession of early childhood education and use the protected titles “registered early childhood educator” (RECE), “early childhood educator” (ECE) and their French equivalents.

The College’s online public register is the only accurate way to verify an individual’s current membership status. Parents and employers should always check the public register to verify an individual’s registration status with the College. The public register can be accessed online from anywhere, any time.
