AECENS  is the only organization in Nova Scotia representing the interests and meeting the professional development needs of early childhood educators.

AECENS is the voice for ECEs in Nova Scotia, regardless of where you work. We recognize the importance of the work you do, and advocate for you to receive the recognition, compensation, and credit you deserve.

AECENS is an affiliate organization of the Canadian Child Care Federation (CCCF). AECENS members are also members of CCCF. Our affiliate status connects YOU to a national support network of colleagues and organizations across Canada and provides a voice for AECENS at the national level.

ECEs and their professional practice are our focus — not programs and services.

AECENS is committed to YOU, your practice, and advancing the professionalism of the early learning and care sector.

There is strength in numbers. Join a group of likeminded educators who have the knowledge, passion, and experience to support you in your practice.
