Bryant Goh's firm belief in Early Childhood Education
The 21st Century Educator
“Real education should educate us out of self into something finer; into a selflessness which links us with all humanity” – Nancy Astor.
Bryant Goh, graduate of the Early Childhood Education Diploma indeed believes that his education here in Ngee Ann Polytechnic has helped him embody the different roles as an educator. The 25-year-old expressed that the Diploma has groomed him into an effective educator through helping him understand concepts on child development and classroom management. Over and above that, he also honed soft skills in communication and technology, which has made him industry ready, equipped with the much desired 21st century competencies.
Upon graduation in 2010, Bryant served national service and was thereafter employed by a music school, specializing in early childhood music. He then pursued a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education with Wheelock College Singapore in 2013. In the same year, Bryant attained an Associate Diploma of the London College of Music in Early Childhood Music Teaching from the University of West London.
With two years of field experience under his belt, Bryant is currently working at the Preschool Learning Academy @ Temasek Polytechnic. The invaluable education and working experience he garnered has taught him to be an effective and passionate facilitator in the early childhood sector.
So what advice can he offer potential or current students in the Early Childhood Education course? He highlights the liveliness and dynamism of the industry where educators in the field must remember that early childhood educators hold the responsibility of building children's character, and molding their physical capabilities and social well-being.
Teaching in the early childhood sector brings pure joy and liveliness not only to the child but the educator too. It is an exciting industry with endless possibilities and intangible perks that one simply cannot obtain from another industry.
