Yew Chung College of Early Childhood Education (YCCECE) is the first and only specialist Early Childhood Education (ECE) institution in Hong Kong, founded in 2018 by the Yew Chung Education Foundation (YCEF), an established non-profit organization with over 86 years of pioneering history in Early Childhood and international education. Since the 1970s, “Yew Chung” has been synonymous with high quality Early Childhood Education (ECE), thanks to the visionary leadership of Dr. Betty Chan Po-king, a globally renowned ECE educator. Today, the Yew Chung Approach to ECE is being recognised for its unique philosophy, curriculum and pedagogy.

YCCECE and its sister institutions are part of an extensive and growing network of kindergartens, schools, and college, providing quality education to over 10,000 students, spanning from infancy to tertiary, across more than 20 locations in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Silicon Valley in the US.

YCCECE also builds upon the strong foundations laid by its predecessor, the Yew Chung Community College (YCCC), which was the first private institution in Hong Kong to offer formal teacher training, with the launch of its highly successful 2-year Higher Diploma in ECE (HDECE) programme in 2014. In September 2018, YCCECE proudly launched its flagship programme, the 4-year Bachelor of Education (Honours) in Early Childhood Education (BEdECE), as well as a new 1-year Diploma in Early Childhood Studies programme. The BEdECE & HDECE programmes qualify graduates to be registered in Hong Kong as Kindergarten Teachers, Child Care Workers, Child Care Supervisors, and Special Child Care Workers.

The Yew Chung Early Childhood Development Centre [YCECDC] created under the College aims to connect valuable and innovative early childhood principles and practices with the greater community; offering young children, and all who are connected and involved in the lives of young children, an inspirational journey of wonder, curiosity, and growth. YCECDC will operate the Discovery Space which boasts dynamic learning environments for children aged 6 months to 8 years of age, where exploration, investigation, creativity, and imagination lead the way in quality learning and development. The indoor and outdoor spaces are intentionally designed around effective learning experiences, where children learn about themselves, others, and the greater world in a highly motivating and inspiring playful approach.
