This program is designed to meet the needs of the Ministry of Education which requires kindergarten and nursery teachers to have Diploma In Early Childhood Education effective from 2020.
According to UNESCO ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Education) Unit, early childhood is defined as the period from birth to 8 years old. A time of remarkable brain development, the foundation for subsequent learning lay in these years. A systematic review of international evidence suggests that the benefits of early childhood education come from the experience itself, of participation, and tany excess of more than 2.5 hours a day does not greatly add to the child development outcome especially if this means the young child is missing out on other experiences and family contact. Early Childhood Education Program is the latest course offered by Geomatika to cater to the growing needs of a better educator in early childhood development.
The program provides an excellent early childhood and classroom management skills for future teachers, as well as professional pedagogical and subject knowledge.
