WAWASAN Open Uni­ver­sity (WOU) is of­fer­ing an af­ford­able Diploma in Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion (DECE) pro­gramme via Open Dis­tance Learn­ing (ODL) with the aim of pro­vid­ing pro­fes­sional up­grad­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­ist­ing and would-be teach­ers work­ing in child­care and pre-schools cen­tres. The DECE pro­gramme will en­able them to ful­fil the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion’s (MOE) re­quire­ment for preschool teach­ers. As a car­ing uni­ver­sity, WOU of­fers a spe­cial fee pro­mo­tion to all new stu­dents who en­rol for the DECE pro­gramme in the up­com­ing part­time study July in­take. Stu­dents will only pay less than RM10,000 for their three-year diploma pro­gramme at WOU.

Jen­nifer Al­berto from Ipoh is in the pi­o­neer batch of stu­dents who have en­rolled for the DECE pro­gramme in Jan­uary.

“This pro­gramme was rec­om­mended to me by the Kinder­garten Teach­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion, Perak. Through DECE, I find creative ways to help chil­dren learn the skills they need for their in­tel­lec­tual, emo­tional and phys­i­cal de­vel­op­ment,” she said.

The DECE pro­gramme pre­pares her with the nec­es­sary skills, which help to cul­ti­vate healthy growth in chil­dren, shap­ing their lives and the com­mu­ni­ties they live in for the bet­ter.

“To suc­ceed in an early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion ca­reer, we must be pa­tient, creative and love help­ing young chil­dren learn. I have been given a chance to ex­plore, build my dreams and mo­ti­vate chil­dren with ex­pe­ri­ence of my own. To be an ed­u­ca­tor, it takes moun­tains of pa­tience and oceans of love.
