09:23 pm - Luddite again
The "College of Early Childhood Educators" (sic) (or in Dorothy Parker's phrase 'sic as a dog') is a government-supported cash grab by a bunch of people who think a professional disciplinary body is necessary for care-givers. They don't advocate for us or for better daycare funding or anything like that, god forbid; they impose fees and fines and requirements and demand $150 annually for the privilege of being our overlords. Nor can they be arsed to send out renewal forms to their members. 'You can download and print the form from our site' ie *you* pay for the paper and ink and stamp, $12.50 an hour peon. 'Oh but you can complete the form and send it to us as an email attachment!' Yes well, I did that, and they wrote back that the form was blank. Checked my sent email, and yes, by golly, so it was. So refilled and saved and checked for sure that the form was complete. And back they come telling me my form is still incomplete but will not say how. Checked email again, on my phone, with three different .pdf readers. And two say the form is filled out- and one says it's still blank.

I hate .pdfs and I hate CECE and if I needed any further impetus to retire, this would be it.

Possibly the tech incompetent is me. But still, they aren't helping.

I am sorry you have to deal with such inefficiencies. Hope it all works out in the end. *HUGS*

It will work out one way or the other. Shall mail them a paper form just to be safe.

Bah humbug! Is it compulsory or otherwise incumbent on care-givers to be registered with them?

It's compulsory for anyone with a certificate in Early Childhood Education who wants to be employed at a licensed daycare. Cannot opt out even if you work as little as 6 hours a week (or two for that matter.) The College's purpose is to make all care givers be ECEs on the grounds that parents with three kids who've been working with children for 30 years know less than a 19-year-old with a piece of paper: which is the exact opposite of the principles on which our daycare was founded.
