“For IECC 2017 we are privileged to have three key note speakers, namely Nathalie Nehma from Australia, Charmaine Teo from Singapore and Melody Stuckey from New Zealand,” she said.
Other invited speakers for parallel sessions are from Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, and China. Rahimah added, “Our main reason for hosting this conference in Kota Kinabalu is that kindergartens and childcare providers in Sabah will have the opportunity to be exposed to and gain fresh insights into teaching preschool children.” (This article was published in The Borneo Star on 24 June 2017 – Full online article here.)
Charmaine’s keynote speech was on “What does it mean to be Reggio inspired? Perspectives from a Singapore preschool”, where she ran through the “WHO WHAT WHERE” of Reggio, and then shared how this philosophy has worked for a small school like Between Two Trees in Southeast Asia.
Charmaine and Hui Hua also ran two parallel workshops: “Connecting with Children: Conversations Through Art” and “How Project Learning is Carried Out in a Singapore Preschool”.
