“APECP views Early Childhood Education as a serious matter because children deserve the best we can give to them in their formative years. This is also the foundation for every child to be a useful citizen of the nation. Therefore, what we give them, whether it is a service or a product, should be of distinction and excellence,” said Dr K H Wang, Group Executive Director of Smart Reader® Worldwide and President of APECP.
Officially registered in December 2007, the association aims to enable members to use the association as a platform to share ideas, innovation and new research in the field of Early Childhood Education.
