    Yew Chung Story

    YCCECE is a member of the Yew Chung Education Foundation (YCEF), both are registered non-profit organisations in Hong Kong

    YCCECE is founded in 2018 by the Yew Chung Education Foundation (YCEF), an established non-profit Association in Hong Kong with almost 90 years of pioneering history in Early Childhood and international education, bringing together the best of the East and West.


    Since the 1970s, “Yew Chung” has been synonymous with high quality Early Childhood Education (ECE), thanks to the visionary leadership of Dr. Betty Chan Po-king, a globally renowned ECE educator. Today, the Yew Chung Approach to ECE is being recognised for its unique philosophy, curriculum and pedagogy, and we continue to explore new paradigms.



    YCEF and its sister institutions are part of an extensive and growing network of kindergartens, schools, and college, providing quality education to over 10,000 students, spanning from infancy to tertiary, across more than 20 locations in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Silicon Valley in the US. YCCECE also builds upon the strong foundations laid by its predecessor, the Yew Chung Community College (YCCC), which was the first private institution in Hong Kong to offer formal teacher training, with the launch of its highly successful Higher Diploma in ECE (HDECE) programme in 2014.



    In 2018, our College continued to blaze new trails by transforming into YCCECE – the first and only specialist ECE degree-awarding institution in Asia – and we proudly launched our flagship programme, the Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Early Childhood Education (BEdECE).



    We are deeply committed to nurturing a new generation of passionate and inspired ECE professionals, who will have an enduring impact on the lives of numerous young children and their families, and truly change the world.



    We are most grateful for the steadfast support of world-class ECE experts, as well as YCEF's extensive community of educators and overseas partners.
