Our Story

Our Story

A proud history that started in 1985

In 1985 a group of Resource Teachers began to recognize many common concerns and needs of professionals working with exceptional children and their families. Annual conferences were sponsored to address those needs and led to an interest in the development of a provincially recognized organization. In 1990 this interest resulted in the accreditation of the Early Childhood Resource Teacher Network of Ontario. The following links outline the philosophy, objectives and by-laws by which the ECRTNO operates.

Mission

The Network promotes the inclusion of children with varying needs and abilities, in their communities, by providing a forum for networking, education, professional development, and collaborative advocacy for Resource Teachers and Consultants across the province of Ontario.

Vision
