Ontario, Canada is one of very few jurisdictions where a professional regulatory body for early childhood educators has been legislated. Known as the College of Early Childhood Educators, or College, it protects the public interest and has defined what constitutes professional practice through a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. The College also oversees membership practice and protection of the titles, “early childhood educator/ECE” or “registered early childhood educator/RECE”. They have focused on leadership development and are preparing to implement mandatory continuous professional learning for members beginning this fall. In this café video, Glory Ressler – eastern Canadian National Representative to the World Forum, interviews the Director of Professional Practice on some key elements of the College and its work to-date.
