The Code of Ethics - Early Childhood Australia A code of ethics is a set of statements about appropriate and expected behaviour of members of a professional group and, as such, reflects its values. The Early Childhood Australia Code of Ethics was first developed in 1990 by a national working party, with considerable input from the early childhood field. The 2003-06 Code of Ethics Agenda resulted in a new Code of Ethics, which was endorsed at Early Childhood Australia's National Council meeting in September 2006 (currently valid). The Code of Ethics is owned by the field, rather than imposed upon it. Wise moral decisions will always acknowledge our interdependency; our moral choices are ours alone, but they bind us all to those who will be affected by them.So deciding for yourself what's right or wrong does not mean deciding in isolation' (Mackay, 2004, p. 242). This Code of Ethics provides a framework for reflection about the ethical responsibilities of early childhood professionals. Order online:
