YES, and I do believe it is a positive thing, It creates a way to monitor the profession. There wouldnt be any more cases of child molesters working in centres ever again with this governing body in place.

I also think it is a good thing to monitor the profession and hopefully this will ensure that others see ECE's more as professionals rather than babysitters. 

As in the cases of child molesters or child abuse happening in the centres.  I am not 100% convinced that even though someone has applied to the governing body that they will not do this.  Look at the nursing or doctor profession as two examples.  Professional, yet they are abusing their patients.  Hopefully this is not going to happen with the ECE professionals.

I do agree with what you said Laura
I think it will help ensure quality people are working in the field and make it harder for fly by individuals.
