Here are a few Codes of Ethics that are meaningful to me. The first are from NAEYC.

“I-1.3—To recognize and respect the unique qualities, abilities, and potential of each child.”

~Each child is a unique individual and should be treat in that manner. Lessons should be implemented in a way that various learning styles are addressed and children with learning disabilities are able to have their needs met.

“-2.5—To respect the dignity and preferences of each family and to make an effort to learn about its struc- ture, culture, language, customs, and beliefs.”

~We have an obligation to respect the diversity of the families that are enrolled in our programs.

Here are the ethical codes from the DEC that I found to be meaningful to my profession.

  1. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND PREPARATION

    “We shall continually be aware of issues challenging the field of early childhood special education and advocate for changes in laws, regulations, and policies leading to improved outcomes and services for young children with disabilities and their families.”

~ As professionals in the Early Childhood field, we have to stay up to date on the issues within the field. This will help improve our programs and will benefit the families that we serve.
