Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice
With many legislative and policy changes implemented in the early years sector since the release of the College’s first Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, a comprehensive review of the standards was conducted during a two-year period to ensure changes in the profession were reflected. Through surveys and roundtables, the College secured feedback on the proposed revisions from members and stakeholders across Ontario. The revised standards now identify RECEs as leaders and place greater emphasis on relationships, communication, collaboration, learning environments and professionalism. The second edition of the Code and Standards was released in June 2017.
