What Makes a Good ECE
Recognizing Early Childhood Educators - Our CCCF Awards of Excellence:
Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) are the backbone of Canada’s early learning and child care sector. ECEs embrace the opportunity to care, nurture, guide, and educate Canada’s youngest citizens.
They are professional, thoughtful, kind and caring individuals who are able to multitask and adapt in environments that can change quickly. ECEs reflect on what is occurring and what has happened in order to adapt, learn and grow. As lifelong learners, they are curious and eager to improve their ongoing knowledge, challenging their practice, in order to better engage children, families and communities. A great early childhood educator has a deep respect for the child, their rights, and their families, and shows compassion and empathy in their professional practice each and every day.
The Canadian Child Care Federation’s Award for Excellence in Child Care was launched in 1993 to honour individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the field of child care. This biennial award recognizes achievements in caregiving, new initiatives, quality, research, education, policy and advocacy.
