In olden days, pre-school teachers do not possess any formal training in teaching field, they do so because of their love for children and their passion for teaching.

But nowadays, parents are more educated and more demanding. In order to meet their requirements, pre-school and childcare teachers must equip themselves with appropriate professional qualifications and the right skills. Therefore, the demand for academic qualification especially at Diploma level seems to be increasing.

In Malaysia, there are many instituitions offer these kind of courses for those who seek for early childhood education. However, one must consider the following few important criteria before signing up for any related course in early childhood education.
