Nova Scotia Child Care Association is a non- profit society with the goal of professional recognition of its members who are Early Childhood Educators in Nova Scotia.  In pursuit of this goal NSCCA has instituted its Professional Recognition Project (PRP).  The project will run over a period of 3 years from 2015 to 2018 culminating in a business and strategic plan for achieving professional recognition of early childhood practitioners.  There are several components to the project including scans of literature on professional infrastructure components, professionalization process and professional recognition models; consultation with members and related organizations regarding entitlements, membership categories and core values; a comparative worth study; development of a communications plan; and development of a business and strategic plan for professional recognition.

The project is guided by the NSCCA Professional Recognition Project Advisory Committee (PRAPC) who is accountable to the NSCCA Board of Directors.  This committee will monitor the progress of the project’s components and serve as a resource to the consultants.  Administration of contracts will be done by NSCCA’s Executive Director
