You may not know this, but by the age of three years old an estimated 95 percent of a child’s brain capacity has already been developed. Education of young children is recognised as the foundation for their future learning. Hence, this vital period requires the assistance of well-trained Early Childhood Education (ECE) professionals, as they understand the mechanics of a child’s cognitive development and their thought processes. Our competent educators are able to apply effective teaching methods that cater every young learner’s needs. PORTMAN Diploma in Early Childhood Education (DECE) provides the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained in lectures, tutorials and industrial training to contribute to society through social and community engagement, counseling, human development as well as leadership.
