The challenges faced in the 21st century are daunting; and the skill to creatively adapt in this ever-changing environment is crucial. Education is a critical part of this response; yet getting it right in a child’s life is the key to his lifelong well-being. This has led to an awareness for early childhood education (ECE); apparent around the world with countries implementing policies that focus on improving access to and support for ECE services.
As the sector grows, so have the overall ECE industry and its network of systems involving all levels of public governance; and encompassing private and non-profit organisations. Whilst each entity plays a significant role in enhancing ECE, it is imperative that everyone comes together to collectively raise the standards of ECE experience for all children.
It has never been more pertinent for all stakeholders beginning with parents, right through to every person who comes in contact with the early development of children, to understand the importance of keeping the well-being of every child at the heart of their initiatives. It is time to reflect if we are #initfortherightreason. It is time to UNITE.
Promising a unique approach, the two-day event features an innovative programme that comprises keynote addresses, networking sessions and lively interactive workshops dotted by performances that expound the merits of performing arts in ECE methodology. The organisers of this inaugural symposium, Dika College Malaysia and Learning Box Sdn. Bhd. welcome you to share ideas, discuss challenges, discover opportunities and collaborate to build an ECE industry where we are all in it for the right reason #initfortherightreason.

The saying “It takes a village to raise a child” holds true especially during a child’s formative years. The benefits of interaction with other people are well-documented and appear evident in relation to increased levels of psychological health, emotional well0being and physical wellness.
It is therefore pivotal for a community to have a childcentred outlook that places the child at the heart of its interests.
