Becoming certified as an early childhood educator (ECE) demonstrates a commitment to professionalism and competence in the field of early childhood education.
The purpose of becoming certified as an ECE is to demonstrate your knowledge and skills in the areas of child development, early learning, and teaching methods.
The CCS Certification process results in level/s (that is, how much post-secondary child care education you hold) and classification/s (that is, the age groups or settings for which you are certified) being assigned to an individual based on their educational background. The Newfoundland and Labrador Child Care Services Certification Information Booklet, provided by AECENL, contains much of the information you would need to know about this process.
The Association of Early Childhood Educators Newfoundland – Labrador (AECENL) is funded by the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Government to deliver Child Care Services Certification and to support the orientation courses that may be necessary for a person to achieve certification in a particular classification. CCS Certification is an important first step in obtaining recognition for the valuable work that encompasses the child care sector. Click here to find further information about CCS Certification.
