Registered Early Childhood Educators
All of our full-time staff are registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators, agoverning body that serves as a guide and sets standards for the professional practice and ethical conduct in the field of early childhood in Ontario. This is to ensure safe, healthy,
supportive environments and developmentally appropriate care that involves caring and nurturing relationships that support learning (Code of Ethics, p.9).
We view adults/educators as “competent and capable, curious and rich in experience” (HDLH, 2014). They are knowledgeable, caring, reflective and resourceful professionals. With this they bring diverse social, cultural and linguistic perspectives, collaborating with others to create engaging environments and experiences that foster children’s learning and development (HDLH, p.7). Our educators participate in professional development opportunities and view themselves as lifelong learners.
