4. All families are welcome. The parents’, or guardians’, role in the care, well-being and development of their child is honoured and supported. Parents will be able to participate in the program to the full extent of their comfort level. 5. The centre advocates on behalf of individual children and their families for enhanced funding to support inclusion in the program. 6. Inclusion is successful when it is a positive experience not just for the child and family but also for educators, peers and program. The centre will actively problem solve with all participants to achieve an inclusion process that is positive for all involved. 7. KCCE will work in partnership with staff, parents and support agencies to develop and implement an individual support plan for children with identified diagnoses. This will be kept in the child’s file and reviewed on an annual basis. 3.14 Code of Conduct In keeping with the Early Childhood Educator’s Act, all staff who have their ECE qualifications are required to be a member in good standing with the College of Early Childhood Educators. Kids Connection Care and Education has adopted the same Code of Ethics as the College of ECE and the Association of Early Childhood Educators of Ontario. This code reflects a core set of beliefs and values that are fundamental to our field and serve to inform our practice as Registered Early Childhood Educators. They include our obligations to children, our obligations to families, our obligations to colleagues and leaders, and finally our obligations to professional competence. The following expectations are intended as a guide to maintain an atmosphere within our centres that is happy, comfortable, and safe. Adults and children at all times shall: 1. Be courteous to one another. 2. All staff, students and volunteers have the right to work and train in an environment that asserts the personal worth and dignity of each individual. In order to achieve this objective, Kids Connection Care and Education will not tolerate any violence, discrimination or harassment in its employment or business dealings. We have a zero tolerance policy, and any instance of inappropriate behavior will be sent to the Board of Directors for review and resolution. 3. Conduct themselves in a manner which allows each child, and staff to feel safe from abuse of any kind. 4. Resolve conflict in a peaceful manner. 5. Respect the building and equipment as well as all personal belongings of staff and children. 6. Show respect for all individuals through his/her behavior and words. Please note: KCCE is committed to providing a safe environment for all children, staff, and parents while in our care. All parents/guardians/adults involved in your child’s experience at KCCE must sign and abide by the terms and policies stated in the Parent Code of Conduct.
