How to Check if Your Child’s Early Childhood Educator is Qualified
You can find information about registered early childhood educators (RECEs) in Ontario by using the College of Early Childhood Educators’ online public register. Created as part of its responsibility to protect the public interest, the College’s register allows anyone including parents, employers and even members themselves to access information about anyone who is, or was, a member of the College.
The register gives you information including the member’s name, registration number and status, and when their Certificate of Registration was issued. It also shows important information like limitations on the ability to practise, disciplinary actions and pending discipline proceedings.
Checking the register is the only guaranteed way to make sure someone is registered with the College. The best part is that the register is updated in real-time so it reflects the most current information. And since it’s online, you can check it anytime, anywhere.
Check the register yourself at college-ece.ca/publicregister.
