AECENL has been representing the issues of child care practitioners and quality child care since 1989 when it was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. As long-time promoters of National Child Day (November 20th each year) we work to highlight the rights of children.

AECENL spearheaded the proclamation of "Early Childhood Educators' Week" by the Province many years ago and continues to ensure that the Child Care Sector and those who work in it are recognized for their important work. Beginning this year Early Childhood Educators' Week will be celebrated annually beginning the last Sunday of May and continuing to the following Saturday. Be sure to check back to the AECENL website in the New Year for more information about the proclamation and activities during ECE week!
