SEGi’s DECE Initiative: Elevating Early Education Standards

In a significant stride towards enhancing early childhood education, SEGi College Kuala Lumpur continues demonstrating its commitment to excellence through practical training initiatives. The Faculty of Education, Languages, Psychology, and Music’s Diploma in Early Childhood Education (DECE) recently orchestrated a hands-on training session on behavioural assessment. Held at Tadika Mukmin Junior LP8, Selangor, on 28 February 2024, this event brought together aspiring educators and preschoolers for a transformative learning experience. 

The DECE students, led by Saripah Binti Selamat and six dedicated students, delved into observing and assessing preschoolers’ behaviour patterns using advanced methodologies. Utilising techniques such as Anecdotal Record, Checklist, and Time Sampling, students gained invaluable insights into children’s development and learning styles. This practical approach underscores SEGi’s dedication to providing holistic education and preparing students for real-world challenges in early childhood education. 

The event started with a warm welcome from the kindergarten teacher representative, followed by inspiring words from the principal, Puan Walida. Students then engaged in an immersive outdoor activity, ‘Giant Bubble,’ fostering experiential learning among 25 children under the guidance of four kindergarten teachers. The event’s culmination saw students presenting their findings to the principal, facilitating valuable discussions and knowledge sharing. 

This hands-on experience serves as a cornerstone in the professional growth of DECE students, equipping them with essential skills for effective classroom management and early intervention. SEGi’s emphasis on practical learning ensures that students translate theoretical knowledge into impactful practice, ultimately benefiting the young minds they will shape. 

With a steadfast commitment to excellence and innovation in education, SEGi continues to set benchmarks in early childhood education. Such initiatives not only elevate SEGi’s academic reputation but also reinforce its role as a leading institution nurturing competent and compassionate educators.
