Early Childhood Education Council (ECEC)

The Early Childhood Education Council (ECEC) is a council for Pre-K to grade 3 teachers and acts on behalf of young children and their teachers to promote excellence in education.

General Objectives
The objectives of the Early Childhood Education Council are to:
• improve practice in the field early childhood education by increasing members’ knowledge and understanding;
• foster the professional development of members through membership activities and services;
• provide advice and expertise to the ATA on learning and working conditions, curriculum and teacher preparation as related to early childhood education; and
• act through the ATA as an advocate for the advancement and promotion of early childhood education.

Facts About the ECEC
• Our council represents teachers of ECS/K and Grades 1, 2 and 3.
• We have 8 regionals representing all areas of the province.
• We collaborate with Alberta Education to develop curriculum and support materials.
• We are dedicated to providing professional development for our members, including an annual conference and regional activities.
• We are strong advocates of the importance of early childhood education.

The ECEC encourages members to contribute opinions on matters relating to the education of young children. The Council also solicits input from other childcare professionals and fosters liaisons between these people and professional educators. The Council sponsors an annual conference designed to glean new and exciting ideas from teachers; the conference also facilitates the sharing of such information among members. At the regional level, the Council sponsors events and activities to encourage participation among members, thus allowing members to share information about early childhood education issues and resources.
