Petaling Jaya, Monday 29 February 2016 – Early childhood education experts from Malaysia and Indonesia gathered together to attend the signing ceremony celebrating the emergence of an exclusive licensee of the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) for Malaysia and Indonesia.
A thirteenth license holder around the world, Little Uns Sdn Bhd, which is a collaboration between the HELP Education Group and OSK, has been awarded the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) exclusive distribution rights for both Malaysia and Indonesia.
The HELP Education Group, OSK and IPC are committed to raising the standards of early childhood education in Malaysia and Indonesia to an international level and equipping students in these markets with the tools necessary to meet the 21st century demand, through an innovative local approach.
“We are extremely excited about the partnership with IPC as it provides children in Malaysia and Indonesia access to a progressive curriculum. We have studied many types of curriculum from around the world and we believe we have found the perfect fit for the children with IPC’s innovative materials. We look forward to a long partnership with IPC and expect to grow the market quickly in both countries”, said Adam Chan, Director for Little Uns Sdn Bhd.
The Little Uns established The Little Tree House kindergarten in Atria Shopping Gallery in Petaling Jaya.
Malaysian parents, and business owners who are considering a new business venture or are interested in starting a new preschool, and existing preschool owners/operators who wish to raise the profile of their school are most welcome to explore opportunities with IPC.
The new opportunities that are presented to Little Uns and those that seek to be involved in the sector in Malaysia and Indonesia are also shared by the IPC. “There has been a significant demand for our programs and training in both countries and we worked diligently to find a partner that best represented our strategic interests in the region,” said Peter de Beer, Executive Director of the IPC. “The diverse and experienced backgrounds of all stakeholders coupled with a local representation that can offer IPC services directly to clients will mean that IPC clients in this part of the world will receive tailored assistance that is relevant to their needs and community.”
During the last two weeks, members of IPC’s Executive Board partnered with Little Uns to showcase the benefits of the IPC in the Malaysian and Indonesian markets. Those who attended received information of the IPC’s international research, inquiry, objective and play-based curriculum, and were briefed on the benefits of acquiring the IPC, including how the teaching material provided by the IPC will set schools apart from the rest in their local areas. The IPC’s teacher training course, and explanation on the benefits of having teachers trained in ECE best practices were also presented.
As an International Preschool Curriculum Exclusive License holder, educators at IPC Malaysia and Indonesia schools will teach students using the IPC’s 56 thematic unit curriculum. Within each unit are activities encompassing the IPC’s six trans-disciplinary content learning areas, including language arts, socio-emotional skills, numeracy, creative and visual arts, sciences and fine and gross motor skills. IPC schools will receive content that not only has already been researched and prepared, but also includes learning objectives and assessments to monitor student levels. This saves teachers immense amounts of time, saves school owners money, and leaves more time for students to learn effectively.
