Empowering Early Childhood Education

MMP’s 32nd ECE level 1 Seminar

The recently concluded 32nd Early Childhood Education Level 1 seminar, held from June 20-22, 2024, marks the commencement of Mission Ministries Philippines' Year-Round Seminars. This enlighteningevent brought together early childhood educators and practitioners via Zoom, focusing on the theme “Rekindling Your Passion in Early Childhood Education”.

The three-day seminar showcased speakers primarily from the University of the Philippines. Their presentations were largely based on the philosophy adopted by Mission Ministries Philippines. It was impressive to see how the speakers connected their content to the Developmentally Appropriate Philosophy endorsed by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children)

The seminar highlighted the new Matatag Curriculum of the Department of Education, underscoring the government’s recognition of its vital role in shaping Filipino children. This curriculum aims to unleash the full potential of the new generation for national progress. MMP's curriculum closely aligns with Matatag, positioning MMP as a pioneer, having implemented it from the outset. Part of the Matatag curriculum includes teaching 21st-century skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity, which are also integrated into MMP’s Kidprenuer curriculum. This approach aims to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset in children, preparing them to be future leaders not only in business but also in serving the Kingdom of God.

As the field of early childhood education continues to evolve, events like this seminar play a crucial role in fostering a community of informed and passionate educators committed to providing high-quality, developmentally appropriate education for all children.
