With the rapid development in the current Early Childhood Education system, more parents are now paying extra attention in getting their children a more professional and comprehensive early childhood education. Preschool education is taking up a more significant role in the entire education system where extensive attention is given to the psychological development of children in their early years. The demand for quality and professional early childhood educators is therefore substantially greater than before. The early childhood stage is a phase for intellectual development as well as the foundation for character-building in a person. In this primary learning stage, early childhood education turns out as a crucial period for young children to establish correct values and good habits.
In the process of learning and knowledge-sharing, young children need a professional educator who can guide them well and provide a wholesome education. Therefore, it is particularly necessary for an early childhood educator to have high quality knowledge and skills in preschool teaching. The Institute of Childhood Education-Studies and Community Education (INSTITUT CECE) is a 26-year-old teacher-training institute with a teaching team made up of instructors with master’s degree in preschool education. By providing academic and professional training programmes as well as internship opportunities in kindergartens, Institut CECE equips students with a solid foundation in early childhood education. Students are trained to effectively help young children to develop their potential and creativity. Programmes are designed to give students the right knowledge and skills to deal with the overall physical and mental development of young children, which can further foster loving and patient children. Over the years, Institut CECE has trained more than 3,500 highly qualified professional preschool educators. Its diploma programmes are accredited by both the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) of Singapore. The high quality training strategies of Institut CECE not only guarantee final learning outcomes, but have also garnered credibility with many well-known kindergartens and nurseries in Malaysia as well as the KLC International Institute (KLCII) in Singapore. Hence, Institut CECE graduates are able to secure employments immediately after graduation. The programmes offered by Institut CECE include: Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Diploma in Early Childhood Special Education. Students can choose to study full-time, part-time or on a modular basis. Short-term programmes can be completed within 2.5 years whereas long-term programmes will take 4 years. Despite the pursuit of quality and high standards, tuition fees in Institut CECE are, on the contrary low and affordable at RM 13,560. Moreover, all tuition fees can be paid in instalments at 0% interest rate. The programme covers the basics of early childhood education, early childhood development, early childhood counselling, national preschool programme, infant care and games, special education in early childhood, kindergarten curriculum and planning, early childhood visual arts, music, mathematics, language and literacy.
Graduates who have obtained a Diploma in Early Childhood Education can either apply via credit transfer, to enrol in a Bachelor degree programme in the Department of Early Childhood Studies at Tunku Abdul Rahman University (UTAR) or other local universities, or opt to further their studies in early childhood at the University College Birmingham in the United Kingdom or Taiwan National Pingtung University.
