HEAR FROM PAST WINNERS ON WHAT BEING
AN EARLY CHILDHOOD PROFESSIONAL MEANS FOR THEM.

Farhana Binte Mohamed Hassan

2020 OUTSTANDING EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCARER
PCF SPARKLETOTS @ PIONEER BLK 987D

“As Educarers, we need to ensure that the infants are given lots of opportunities to play, learn and grow. We partner families so that we can work together to give every infant a good start in life.”

Ke Caiyun

2020 OUTSTANDING EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCARER
PCF SPARKLETOTS @ RADIN MAS BLK 18

“The growth and development of children from birth to the age of 3 is rapid. So, I feel that my work is at the critical stage of their lives. As the Chinese saying goes, your character at 80 is set in stone when you are 3.”

Eileen Chia Ming Xiu

2020 OUTSTANDING EARLY CHILDHOOD TEACHER
LITTLE SKOOL-HOUSE BY-THE-VISTA

“As educators, we need to be reflective of our teaching practices and curriculum and find creative ways to encourage children to explore.”

Eudora Tan Ee Teng

2020 OUTSTANDING EARLY CHILDHOOD TEACHER
ST JAMES' CHURCH KINDERGARTEN (GILSTEAD)

“I believe that being an Early Childhood Educator is more than just providing answers to children, or simply telling them what to do. It is really about provoking their thinking with questions and challenges.”

Tan Chiew Hoon

2020 OUTSTANDING EARLY CHILDHOOD TEACHER
PCF SPARKLETOTS @ PIONEER BLK 654B

“As teachers, we play a facilitating role supporting and guiding them (the children). When a child asks a question, we can respond in a way which further encourages the children to think critically instead of giving them the answer directly.”
