Interprofessional Collaboration Resource

This joint resource was developed as a result of a collaborative research project involving both the Ontario College of Teachers and the College of Early Childhood Educators.
This resource helps to bring the ethical standards and standards of practice for both professions to life as educators work together to support early learning.​​

Case Studies

The College is pleased to publish case studies describing real experiences in the professional practice of early childhood educators. These cases were written by registered members of the College. 

​​​Case Study 1: Sarah’s Confusing Behaviour

​​​Case Study 2: Accepting the Consequences

Case Study 3: Getting Bumps and Taking Lumps


Similar to case studies, vignettes highlight dilemmas associated with professional decision-making and action and may be used as a professional learning resource.
