  • A Class Struggle Won

    We are proud to share YCIS Chief Executive and School Supervisor Dr Betty Chan’s interview in South China Morning Post published on 7th April 2018. “It is really through teacher training that we can have the greatest impact on our community,” Speaking to SCMP, Dr Chan shared her pioneering journey on innovating the local kindergarten education with “play-based” pedagogy plus no homework in 1970s and how she navigated through a sea of daunting comments by holding on to her beliefs. Taking the milestone of 85th anniversary, Dr Chan identified a paradigm shift in teacher education as necessary, and went on elaborating on her aspiration of the “B to B” (Baby to Bachelor’s) concept as a way to realise YCEF’s pedigree of nurturing future generations from infancy and tertiary, plus the launching of Bachelor’s degree in early childhood education next academic year upon government approval. Taking one step further, we aim to create a holistic educational environment ranging from professional development, academic and practitioner research to parent-community education and outreach especially for those underprivileged young children.
