KLC International Institute (KLCII), commemorated its 30th anniversary with a dinner gala at the Marriott Hotel on 31 August 2018. It was held in conjunction with the 40th Anniversary of Singapore premium preschool, Kinderland.
Some 300 guests comprising representatives from stakeholders such as the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA), Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), Kinderland franchisees, principals, teachers and staff, attended the commemorative event.
A visual presentation of KLCII’s rich 30-year history and achievements was screened to show how it had trained some 28,000 preschool teachers and leaders over the years for Singapore’ s early childhood sector as well as the region.
Dr Jane shared in her speech that the history of KLCII was not just about its training courses.
“….. it’s really about its people – the story of its leaders’ vision of providing quality preschool education and training for as many as we can reach; a story of personal as well as professional ties with key partners who built upon this shared vision of its leaders.
“It is a story of the wonderful friendships forged with collaborators, both government and businesses, to accomplish common goals. It is a story of how KLCII became an integral part of the early childhood quality and professional development masterplan in Singapore,” said Dr Jane.
She said that with the encouragement and support from Enterprise Singapore, KLCII has begun moving beyond our own shores, taking steady steps in countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, China and soon, the greater ASEAN region.
Dr Jane also shared KLCII’s plans to roll out digital training initiatives in 2019. “What matters is the future,” she added.
