    2.  the Agreed Statement of Facts,

    3.  the Joint Submission on Penalty and Costs, and

    4.  the Panel’s Decision and Reasons.

  4.  The Member will meet with the Mentor at least every 2 weeks after the Mentor has been approved by the Director to discuss the following subjects:

    1.  review of the College’s Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice,

    2.  the acts or omissions by the Member, which resulted in the Discipline Committee finding the Member guilty of professional misconduct,

Special Notices

On February 16, 2021, the Discipline Committee of the College of Early Childhood Educators found the member guilty of professional misconduct.

The Committee found that the Member had committed several acts of professional misconduct, including failing to maintain the standards of the profession; acting or failing to act in a manner that, having regard to the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional; and conducting herself in a manner that is unbecoming a member.

The Committee directed the Registrar to suspend the Member’s certificate of registration for at least six months and to impose terms, conditions and limitations on the Member’s certificate of registration. The Committee also required the Member to appear before it to be reprimanded and ordered the Member to pay costs to the College in the amount of $1,000.
