Established in July 2009, the Academic and Professional Development Division (APD) at PCF HQ oversees the development, delivery and evaluation of curriculum at PCF Education Centres, be they kindergartens or child care centres. APD comprises the Curriculum Team and the Language Specialists Team.
The team of curriculum specialists at APD work closely with the PCF Education Centres to support classroom teaching and curriculum delivery, and provide advice in the setting up of the learning environment to support children's learning. They keep abreast of the latest developments in the field of early childhood education and share their knowledge and expertise on various platforms.
The curriculum team believes that play is an integral part of learning, and has incorporated purposeful play activities in the curriculum to actively engage children in constructing knowledge and discovering new relationships in a fun and enjoyable manner.
