MECHE programme is designed to prepare working adults for high-level academic study in early childhood and to conduct research in the area of early childhood education. The research project conducted by students will help them to learn basic research skills in early childhood education as well as to prepare them for graduate study at the doctoral level. Students who wish to progress in academia are exposed to academic journal writing and they are encouraged to publish their own research paper.

During the duration of the programme, students will be provided with specific information on childcare and preschool that includes innovative teaching pedagogies, quality early childhood environment, children with special needs and child development theories to enhance the practice of early childhood education. Graduating students with MECHE have high possibilities for very rewarding careers such as early childhood teacher, subject matter expert, consultant, programme designer, author of children’s book, early childhood tutor and early childhood education trainer.

On top of that, students are also taught to design their own early childhood programme or curriculum and learn how to run their own early childhood centre based on the curriculum they have designed. They are also taught on how branches and early childhood education franchise system can help them expand their business.
