In response to regulatory changes being proposed by the Ministry of Education, the Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario (AECEO), the Childcare Resource and Research Unit (CRRU) and others with an interest in high quality child care are seeking signatures to an Open Letter to Ontario Education Minister, Liz Sandals.
The Ontario government has proposed changes to key child care regulations, including reductions to adult: child ratios and increases to group sizes. In response, the open letter outlines the research on these important program elements and raises concerns about the proposed change's impact on quality and on early childhood staff.
Today we launch a new, updated AECEO Certification designation and program. AECEO.C is the new credential that will attest to an AECEO member's successful completion of our Certification program. We are very pleased with the new acronym as it more accurately captures the ownership and administration of this much respected program. The replacement of "ECE.C" is not an easy one for us, nor for some of you as we have heard. However, as we discussed in the Fall/Winter 2013 issue of the eceLINK, changing times and legislation require the retirement of this well-respected acronym.
