Sherry Hunniford commented on Regional Wage Scales for RECEs Working in Regulated Childcare in Ontario 2017-01-11 15:07:28 -0500I have been working in the field for over 20 years and my yearly salary is hardly enough to make ends meet. I have been working with the school board in Kindergarten for 5 years and I do just as much as the teacher / partner in my class if not more. I get no planning time but do most planning, I get all duties and I am the one who is always in the classroom and left alone often with the children. Sometimes the ratio is 1 to 30 and can be even higher with no cap. It would be really nice to recognize that this is a very crucial age in child development and children are our future so our career should be better paid and better recognized.

By signing below you are showing support for the professional pay for professional work campaign and will receive updates!
The overarching goal of this campaign is to address the long-standing issue of low and inequitable compensation for early childhood educators (ECEs) in Ontario. We are calling on the government to fund professional pay for all ECEs in Ontario regardless of where they work. Professional pay should reflect ECEs’ specialized training, the value of their work and their participation in continuous professional learning.
No ECE should have to work for less than a professional wage and all ECEs should be recognized for their professional qualifications and practice.
