ece_picbAN EXCITING AND ENRICHING CAREER

Let MCKL provide you with the training for an exciting and enriching career in Early Childhood Education (ECE). ECE which comprises childcare for children below the age of four and preschool education for four to six year olds, is an up-and-coming field in career planning. Governments and parents worldwide are investing in early childhood education in view of the increasing number of working mothers and the importance of providing young children with good and proper foundations for development.

General Information

GOVERNMENT COMMITMENT

Governments and parents worldwide are investing heavily in ECE so it has recently become a fast growing business opportunity both at home and overseas. The Malaysian government recognises that the first 3 years of life are critical in the development of children and is therefore committed to providing quality education for its youngest citizens. As a result of this, it is expected that soon only professionally qualified staff will be able to work as early childhood educators. Parents who want to give their children a right headstart in life place them with well-trained professional childcare providers and preschool teachers.

A FIRST STEP ON A FAST TRACK TO YOUR DEGREE

Today, even in Malaysia, degree holders in early childhood education are teaching in preschools and earning graduate pay. With the openings in this field, Methodist College Kuala Lumpur offers this MQA-fully accredited programme designed to help those interested to become professional early childhood educators. The College also has Articulation Agreements with four British universities. If students choose to study in the UK they can obtain their Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Studies after two further years of study in University College Birmingham, or one further year of study in University of Gloucestershire and University of Tralee, Ireland. If however, they prefer to study here in Malaysia, it is possible to obtain a UK university Bachelor Degree with just two further years of study. Our students will have the option to study in University of the West of England and obtain a Bachelor Degree (after 2 years of study) . These options offer a really fast track to success. Graduates may of course content themselves with the Diploma qualification as they will be able to work in the government or private sector as childcare providers or preschool teachers. They will also be able to register and operate their own preschool or kindergarten.
