Commitment to a Code of Ethics
All of our employed staff and regular volunteers have made a commitment to our profession’s Code of Ethical Conduct, developed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The Code includes core values, ideals and principles in four areas: responsibilities to children; responsibilities to families; responsibilities to employer and co-workers; and responsibilities to community and society. You may view the Code of Ethical Conduct at NAEYC’s website.
