  • Overview
    Learning through play has been prioritised worldwide in early childhood educational activities in recent years.

    The Professional Certificate in Play-Based Pedagogy is offered to help new candidates and early childhood education workers to identify and develop knowledge and skills that may be applied in practice for children in preschools. This is intended to strengthen collaboration and engagement with parents and carers in normalising play-based approaches and advocating this to a wider community.

    The Professional Certificate consists of 4 constituent certificate courses listed below. Students will be granted a Certificate Award upon successful completion of the certificate course.

    It is evident that early identification and early intervention has a positive impact on children with special educational needs, helping to maximise their full potential to achieve as much independence as they are capable of and adjust to their community. Thus, early childhood educators, who are the children’s first teachers, play a critical role in changing outcomes.

    The Professional Certificate in Working with Children with Special Educational Needs aims to equip new candidates and current practitioners in the ECE field with the professional ability to analyse and review developmental delays in atypical children as well as designing learning environments. They will learn how to implement and evaluate individualised early interventions for young children with the assistance of screening assessments under varying ECE settings.

The Parents Book Club helps parents understand their children's physical and mental development so as to allow children always to be heard and to grow up healthily in an environment filled with love.

Participants will read some chapters of the book before the workshop starts, and have discussion on the contents of the book with our tutors during the workshop.

  • Overview
    Studies have shown that infant massage can not only strengthen the non-verbal communication and bonding between infant and parents, but also cultivates a relationship with love, trust and the basis of survival needs between parents and children, as well as easing babies’ transition from one stage to another.

    The touch of skin during the process of massage brings interaction, stimulation, relaxation and pain relief for infants. It strengthens the circulatory system and digestive system, relieves growth pain and muscle tension, and stimulates the growth of premature babies. Infant massage helps parents gain confidence in handling and touching their baby. Infant massage helps mothers who suffer from post-natal depression.

    The course is taught by a Certified Infant Massage Instructor (CIMI) trained by the International Association of Infant Massage*. In the infant massage course, the instructor will demonstrate massage techniques. Parents will learn how to adjust the techniques according to the needs of each child, including premature babies and babies with special needs.

    * International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) is the first global organisation in the field and was founded by Vimala McClure.
