Qualified Early Childhood Educators Give Parents Peace-of-Mind
The College of Early Childhood Educators is the professional organization that regulates early childhood educators in Ontario. The College was created by the Early Childhood Educators Act, 2007 and has issued over 50,000 Certificates of Registration.
The job of the College is to protect the public by setting entry to practise requirements and ethical and professional standards that all early childhood educators must meet. The College investigates complaints from the public about the conduct of its members and, if necessary, disciplines members. An online public register of members is also available on the College’s website so that parents can look up the professionals working with their children.
Only registered members of the College can legally practise the profession and use the protected titles early childhood educator (ECE) and registered early childhood educator (RECE).
