Code of Ethics

In order to provide guiding principles for early childhood educators, the Association for Early Childhood Educators (Singapore) - AECES, has established a Code of Ethics. The professions has ownership of this Code as it developed through dialogue with those in the field. Within this set of principles the need for positive relationships in the ethical practice and professional growth of early educators is acknowledged.



The Association takes the position that the use of technology is an essential teaching and learning tool of the 21st Century and that it must form a part of the early childhood curriculum. However, technology can never replace the sensorial learning, the social-emotional interaction and contact with the physical and human world.
