Early childhood educators have been recognized as critical occupations in Malaysia's 2018/2019 list! Since 2020, holding a diploma in early childhood has become the minimum requirement for individuals aspiring to work in preschools or kindergartens across Malaysia. This underscores the essential need for qualified early childhood professionals who can positively impact young lives during their formative years. SEGi’s Diploma in Early Childhood is meticulously designed by a team of experts who have delivered esteemed programs such as the Montessori Diploma on behalf of the Montessori Centre International UK, in addition to offering Australian and British degrees in early childhood education. The diploma curriculum undergoes regular review to ensure alignment with industry demands.

As a student at SEGi, you'll engage in a learning journey that extends beyond classroom boundaries from the very first semester, immersing yourself in early childhood settings. Through assignments, you'll demonstrate your evolving competencies in delivering effective early childhood experiences. Upon graduation, you'll find opportunities in Malaysia, Singapore, and China.
