The second edition of Ethics and the Early Childhood Educator: Using the NAEYC Code is an NAEYC resource that we are pleased to publish and that follows a history of two minor revisions to the first edition. This edition includes situations that involve ethical dimensions--responsibilities and dilemmas-- based on the 2005 revision and the 2011 reaffirmation and updating of the Code.
Feeney (education, U. of Hawaii at Manoa) discusses the implications of professionalism for early childhood education, for education students and in-service trainees. She examines how professions are organized, including an overview of the nature of professions and the professional status of early childhood education; how individuals can exhibit the ideals and principles of professions in their work with children and families, including the knowledge and skills of early childhood educators, professional behavior, including communication and relationship skills, work ethic, professional ethics, and personal qualities; and self-reflection.
