Joy Chua, a Year 1 CPEE student felt that this experience was “an eye-opener for new students who are interested in branching into this field’.
For Dawn Peh, a Year 2 CPEE student, she found that attending a career talk by the Preparatory Place which focused on the importance of planning activities based on children’s interest rather than adult’s interest most useful and inspiring. “The director showed how ideals can actually be executed in reality in the classroom. "
Indeed, through these career talks, students are motivated and encouraged to be creative and meticulous in designing curriculum that benefits children most.
With the successful conclusion of the seminar, all participating practitioners and students have learnt valuable lessons, beliefs and ideals. The learning would play a pivotal role in shaping the formation of ideas and actions taken by existing and future educators. For the ECH and CPEE students, the conference has enabled them to gain better insights into the early childhood field and develop greater interest and deeper understanding of their education.
As shared by Year 1 ECH student, Jessica Tan, “The conference has inspired me on the important role of an early educator and its great impact on a child.”
