YCIS Early Childhood Brings Special Caregivers’ Workshop
At the core of our Early Childhood Education (ECE) programme, we aim to provide a warm and loving environment, as we believe that positive relationships are the foundation from which all learning can happen and be extended. These relationships include the children and the families, the teachers in our school, all working together to create a joyful, learning kindergarten. For us, this extends to the family’s caregivers too.
