The children’s house celebrates their 30th anniversary at its newly opened flagship centre in Mont Kiara with a charity carnival.
Through the project, The children’s house pledges RM30,000 and proceeds from the sales of coupons for the carnival will go to Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun (PKKTB) and Dignity for Children Foundation.
The event is also an official launch of its Mont Kiara school which has been classified as the flagship centre for The children’s house. Gracing the event are Raja Dato’ Seri Azureen Almarhum Sultan Azlan Muhibbuddin Shah Al-Maghfullah, who is also the chairman of PKK Tuanku Bainun, Dato’ Seri Noraini Jane Marree Ariffin and Raja Dato’ Seri Eleena Sultan Azlan Shah, who are both directors at PKK Tuanku Bainun and were parents at The Children’s House.
The children’s house maintains its high standards within the early childhood education industry by ensuring all its schools are wholly-owned and not franchised. The dedicated staff, some of whom have been with the school for more than 10 years and even up to 29 years is testament to the kind passion that this school’s foundation is built on.
In its 30 years, the school has realised the importance of developing exemplary teachers. Training teachers has become its utmost priority, as a programme that positions teachers as a key component in a child’s development has been put in place. By making the role of a teacher paramount, the school has also seen a rise in the number of young people interested in becoming qualified preschool teachers.
Nan Civel, founder of The children’s house, and fondly known as Aunty Nan says, “We believe the scientifically-proven curriculum which has been around for over a century can enhance the lives of children in an enriching and holistic way.”
“We want for our teachers to realise that they should see themselves as child educators and not child minders. We want to create a conducive environment for these children so they can grow and reach their fullest potential. Apart from this, we also want to spread our wings and expand throughout Malaysia so that our commitment, quality and attention to detail to every preschooler can be experienced by more children,” Aunty Nan concluded.
Moving forward, The children’s house announced its vision of being an inclusive school by offering a special needs specialist in its centres. Opening its doors to more children with special educational needs speaks volumes of the kind of school The children’s house is.
The event is set to see VIP guests, parents, ex-parents, alumni and staff not only enjoying the carnival but funding the education of underprivileged children in Malaysia at the same time by contributing to its Caring & Sharing project.
The children’s house is one of the undisputed leaders for early childhood education in the country. Since 1986, they have touched the lives of more than over 20,000 children from all over the world and have been the trusted choice for parents as they witness their children evolve into confident, compassionate and independent youth who shine in all that they do.
