The experiences and perceived differences in working conditions among early childhood educators who have worked in both for-profit and non-profit childcare centres
MetadataShow full item record
One benefit to joining a professional association is the monitored adherence to quality. Thus, it is expected that members from a professional association adhere to higher quality standards. One indicator of quality in any environment is the working conditions offered to employees. Being members of the college of Early Childhood Educators (ECE) the working conditions of ECEs exemplify professionalism associated with the professional association through the working conditions they are provided. Unfortunately, however, the working conditions offered to ECEs vary in quality. This study examined ECEs’ perceptions of the differences in working conditions between for profit and non-profit childcare centres in the Greater Toronto Area. Interviews were conducted with four ECEs who have worked in both for-profit and non-profit childcare centres. The findings of this study discovered that non-profit childcare centres provide higher quality working conditions than for-profit childcare centres, demonstrating the value and support which an auspice has towards professionalism.
