CHILDREN must be treated with care and respect. They are entitled to opportunities that support their individual emotional, social, creative, cognitive and physical growth and development. Children learn through play and they require a nurturing, responsive environment that fosters active learning, independence, multiculturalism and a sense of responsibility and predictability.
FAMILIES have the primary responsibility for the care and education of their children, and are entitled to be involved in a meaningful way in their childcare experience.
EDUCATORS have chosen their work because of a strong dedication to supporting the development of young children. Educators are entitled to open communication, opportunities for professional growth, financial recognition of the value of their work, as well as a supportive, professional working environment.
