SCMP: A Child-Centred Approach in the Early Years is Essential for Future Success

YCIS was recently featured in South China Morning Post (SCMP), a local English media, to discuss why a child-centred education approach in early years is essential to children's future success.

It is no doubt that too much emphasis is attached to homework and vocabulary flashcards, depriving children of time to play. Yet, it is believed that kids growing up in a play-based environment learn to develop emotional skills and their understanding about relationships and collaboration. 

To meet the unknown challenges in the 21st century, it is hardly enough for students to be passive learners, who are always waiting for instructions from teachers. Instead, they are expected to "develop the ability to plan, monitor, evaluate and implement a variety of thinking processes that are fundamental towards becoming creative and critical thinkers."
