It’s a time of excitement at the Yew Chung College of Early Childhood Education!

There is no other early education institution that prepares its Student Teachers not only for the real world, but also to be change agents in this world. We expect our graduates to not only make a difference in the most critical and formative years of young children’s lives, but also to be future leaders and advocates for the Early Childhood profession.

Building on an unparalleled legacy, influential leadership, and a clear and ambitious vision, YCCECE is committed to changing the face of Early Childhood Education by providing unique pre-service and in-service teacher training programmes to produce high quality educators for the betterment of Hong Kong, Greater China, Asia and beyond.

Achieving these ambitions will require investments – in facilities, research capacity, overseas partnerships, top international faculty, student scholarships and bursaries. These needs call for support beyond the expected income from student tuition, as YCCECE is a wholly private non-profit institution, not funded by the government.

The College appreciates all donations, large or small, in support of our commitment to advance the Early Years profession.

Here we grow, together!


  • Academic & Research

    ECE Resource Centre - To build a local ECE Case Bank, the first of its kind in Hong Kong, for promoting innovative and progressive best practices in ECE curriculum and pedagogy, teachers’ professional development, and assisting the Government in formulating education and social policies.

    Endowed Chair Professorships & Visiting Professors - Attracting world-class faculty is at the heart of all academic institutions. Endowed Chair Professorships and visiting scholars will support our drive to attract the best minds in ECE from around the globe.

    Research Fund - The ECE field is constantly evolving and research is at the forefront of this evolution. Novel solutions, new thinking and innovative research is a key priority for YCCECE going forward, as the College endeavours to be at the cutting-edge of the ECE field.

  • Co-curricular Innovation

    Pioneering co-curricular innovation and learning beyond the classroom have been central to the Yew Chung vision since its beginning. YCCECE will continue in this tradition by creating new opportunities for our students to be well-rounded scholars and educators, whether through e-learning, Study Tours to Mainland China or overseas, Student Exchanges, and Community Outreach programmes.

  • Scholarships & Bursaries

    YCCECE aspires to offer need-blind admission, as we are committed to attracting the brightest and most capable students regardless of their socio-economic backgrounds. This Fund will provide annual and multi-year merit-based scholarships and need-based bursaries for all deserving students who meet our entry and progression requirements, ensuring that they can successfully complete their studies and launch their ECE careers.
