The Professional Practice Department supports the duty and objectives of the College through its work related to professional and ethical standards, ongoing education and communication with members and the public about how the College serves and protects the public interest.


Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice 

The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice communicate the scope and nature of the early childhood education profession. These standards convey certain expectations for which it is reasonable to hold members of the profession accountable. They also express a common set of ideals and aspirations for members of the College, regardless of the early childhood education setting in which they may practise. 


The Code of Ethics reflects a core set of beliefts and values of care, respect, trust and integrity. These beliefs and values are fundamental to members of the profession and guide their conduct.
