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.

For more information on the campaign please see http://www.aeceo.ca/professional_pay_for_professional_work

    As an Ontario Certified Teacher (OCT) with a Masters degree in early development and in my final semester of the ECE (ECAD) program at Cambrian College, and currently working in an early years centre because I absolutely love young children, I find the difference in pay between OCT’s and RECE’s so disappointing and devaluing. Learning begins at birth and research shows the importance of early education. By the time a child begins the ELK program, a significant amount of brain development has already occurred. As Fraser Mustard’s research showed, language, health and even mortality can be predicted by 3 years of age. Therefore, the work of an RECE is vital to a child’s growth and development and needs to be recognized as such with professional pay!

    early childhood educators should get pay increase based on diploma, degree and more..every other profession recognizes this so why should we be any different. A person who has a degree should make more and so on..if you have a masters…level of pay should require experience, schooling and other certifications should reflect your pay..except in this field..there is no standard of pay…that is why people are leaving the field because the pay is very low and your living pay check to pay check .
