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.

 

At YCCECE, we are deeply committed to nurturing a new generation of passionate and inspired ECE professionals, who will have an enduring impact on the lives of numerous young children and their families, and truly change the world.

 

Our boutique-sized College values and promotes interactive learning, small-class teaching and hands-on experiences. Being an English-speaking College with an international faculty, we also attract non-Chinese-speaking students, and take pride in our staff and student diversity.
