With the theme “Bridging the Gap from the Online Platform to Face-to-Face in Early Childhood Education,” Mission Ministries Philippines welcomes the school year 2023–2024 by hosting its annual Early Childhood Education seminars on August 10–12, 2023, for teachers, and on August 17–19, 2023, for administrators. As we advance into the post-pandemic season, MMP stays true to its calling by educating administrators and teachers on issues that are current with the times. The speakers for the aforementioned seminars provided their expertise not just in terms of theory but also on a practical level that the attendees could relate to using examples from their own experiences. This created a vibrant discussion as the attendees expressed their ideas and insights.
With the start of the academic year, four new schools adhere to God’s calling and partner with Mission Ministries Philippines. MMP welcomes the new partners, namely: Elyon Child Development Centre, headed by Ms. Mena G. Rivera, from Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija; and Racham Wilbeth School Inc., headed by Ms. Micciella Ma. Keina Jane L. Pabalate from San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Thrivers Learning Center, headed by Pastor Robin Abano, from Dasmarinas Cavite, and Grace Christian School of Life, headed by Pastor Nimrod J. Embalzado, from Trece Martires, Cavite. Dr. Chonabelle M. Domingo, President and CEO of MMP, salutes these new schools as well as its renewal partners for their steadfast support over the years. Their continuous partnership and patronage of the books of MMP greatly help in accomplishing its mandate.
The Training Certificate in Early Childhood Care and Education, another program of MMP in collaboration with Asian Theological Seminary, starts its new batch this September with 12 new students in the Child and Development module. The success of the previous batch in the online modality prompted the management to continue offering it online. This extends beyond borders and broadens the impact of early childhood education from the perspective of God’s word. As the Lord expands the tents of MMP, so does the growing number of speakers. MMP invites additional professors in the ECE modules to give quality education to our educators. This training certificate is PRC accredited and has six units credit approved by the Commission on Higher Education. Enrollment is still ongoing. For inquiries, you may email email@example.com or contact Ms. Erlyn Isidro at 09301434780.
MMP intends to resume in-person seminars, starting with this October 28, 2023, refresher course entitled Raising the Child’s Higher Order Thinking Skills. Learning is more than repeating a list of facts, answering yes or no, memorization, but making sense of information, comparing, analyzing, making inferences—in short, adapting a higher thinking skill. Learning to think critically is a life skill. This seminar will be at Proclaim His Name Christian Fellowship #8 Scout Madrinan corner Scout Tobias Sts. South Triangle, Quezon City. For registration, you may visit MMP’s Facebook page, MMPece.
Watch out for these upcoming activities: Show of Talent with Kids Bazaar, Christmas Party, Teachers’ Camp, Quiz Bee, and more.
