Studying Early Childhood Education in Malaysia equips you to teach young children and helping them improve their development and academic achievements.
Do you absolutely go off the rails when you visit a relative’s house and your eyes meet those of their child, just wanting to pinch their cheeks off? Do you know that most kids can speak up to 20 words by the age of 18 (months of course, not years!), and 50 by the age of 2? Do other people compliment you on how patient you are, even in the face of the ultimate irritation? (Think small baby screaming his/her guts out right in your face). If so, you might want to consider a career in earlMore details Less

Since roughly 93% of early childhood teachers and childcare providers in Malaysia are SPM holders, Early Child Care and Education (ECCE) training is provided to prepare them to meet the growing needs of young children. Moreover, pre-service training is given to new teachers to raise the quality and level of professionalism in ECCE.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Early Childhood Education:
After completing your studies in Early Childhood Education, you will have the privilege to work with children from different age groups. It will give you an opportunity to discover which age group are you most comfortable with.
Upon completing a degree in this course, you can work with child care centres, nurseries, preschools and even start your own day care centre.
Since schools are a necessity in every country, it is only logical that the number of teachers would have to match up to the demand, and because of this, there are a lot of opportunities for you.
“Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber, and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honour for me”.
Important Note: If you opt to study a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and continue your degree at the same institution, you will most likely get a one-year exemption. This means that you can enter degree year 2 after diploma..
It is not necessary for you to do your postgraduate. You can opt to work straight after a degree.
You’ve always been the one to keep calm when a stressful situation arises, whether it’s during exams, or an issue with friends, you’ve kept a cool head. You’ll need it with the age group of kids you’ll have to deal with. They’re still growing up, and may throw tantrums, cry for no reason and the such. While many will snap and cringe at the very thought, you’re fine, so long as you get to pinch their cheeks afterwards!
You’ll be handling kids at their most vital stage, where everything around them could potentially influence how they will grow up. No pressure! o you need to know how to handle them, what characteristics kids of different age groups have, helping you determine if there are any red flags in their behaviour so it could be checked up on. Plus you’ll be a teacher, how will you ever teach someone else something, if you yourself don’t know anything!
You’ll be given the huge responsibility of caring for other individual’s children. Can you imagine how much trust they would be entailing to you? It’s up to you to treat each and everyone one of them with the love and care you would show your own flesh and blood.
You’ll need to simplify a bunch of information and assimilate it down to bite size pieces for the little ones to digest. Teaching is already difficult enough. Teaching kids at an age where they’re easily distracted is near impossible. You’ll need to get creative to turn your lessons into fun time for everyone.
