In recent years, there is an increasing demand for qualified personnel to work with young children in pre- primary schools.

The program is meticulously crafted to address the growing demand for skilled educators in pre-primary schools. It aims to narrow the disparity between the required competencies and the available expertise in this vital educational sector. By equipping teachers with a diverse range of teaching aids and effective classroom management strategies, the program ensures they are well-prepared to facilitate optimal learning experiences for young children. Through hands-on practice teaching sessions, participants gain invaluable practical exposure, honing their skills and refining their instructional approaches.

This comprehensive initiative not only enables candidates to proficiently teach at the pre-primary level but also supports in-service teachers seeking to enhance their qualifications and capabilities. Participants undergo a transformative journey, delving into the intricacies of child development and psychology, particularly focusing on the age group of 2 to 8 years—the crucial phase when children embark on their educational journey away from the familiarity of their homes. They learn to decode the unique cognitive and emotional needs of young learners, discerning healthy developmental patterns, and adapting teaching methods to suit individual learning styles. Ultimately, the program empowers educators to foster holistic growth and development in young children, laying a solid foundation for their future academic and personal success.

I have successfully completed DELT and PGDPTT from SCDL. I live in Singapore so these courses helped me to start my teaching career. Symbiosis programs are accepted overseas as well. Now after successfully completing the program from SCDL, I am working at Little Gryphons Montessori as a Lead Teacher and heading the school.
