The Making of : TN50 Early Childhood Education Aspirations Video

We recently conducted a video shooting of the National Transformation 2050 (TN50) Aspiration for Early Childhood Education at the Treetop House School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The school’s primary objective is to nurture young children to be the global leaders of tomorrow, teaching and embedding in them the three values of reality, relationship and responsibility.

Featuring the Founder of the Treetop House School, Mr Cham Mat, and its Principal Ms Apsara Menon, the video will highlight some interesting talking points centred around their views on the Malaysian Government’s blueprint related to the foundation of the education system after 2020, their aspirations as teachers in the coming years, seeing as the teaching profession is one of the most demanding and, their thoughts on instilling the importance of human capital as part of early childhood education.

Stay tuned for the release of the video which will certainly give an interesting perspective from professionals who live their lives caring, loving and teaching children.
