Course details

What our students say about the course

Nurul Nadia Binte Mohd Shariff

"Come to class with an open mind, manage your time wisely, and lessons will be so much fun. To be around like-minded people who willingly share experiences and bounce ideas off each other is very enriching."

Nurul Nadia Binte Mohd Shariff is currently learning to make lessons more fun for the children at Bambini Childcare.

Kam Sook Wei

“I took the course because I felt it was my responsibility to help the next generation to rediscover the values and beliefs that seem to be lost nowadays in a “me first” society. I may not be able to change the world, but I know I can impact one child at a time.”

Kam Sook Wei is currently working at Etonhouse.

Cassandra Lam

“The passion to shape the future of young lives, plant the seed of love, and impact their families through interaction prompted the desire to begin the journey in early childcare. The course has been challenging yet rewarding so far.”

Cassandra Lam works at EducaZion.

“I feel proud of the students who have prepared themselves well to work with young children and I wish that they will always experience the joy that I have whenever I interact with young children. Likewise, I want them to continue to learn even as they start teaching, not from me, but from the very children that they are teaching.”
