National Institute of Early Childhood Development (NIEC)


The National Institute of Early Childhood Development, or NIEC in short, is a new national training institute set up by the Ministry of Education to deliver quality training and professional development to Singapore’s early childhood educators.

From January 2019, all early childhood training courses offered by NTUC’s SEED Institute, the Institute of Technical Education (ITE), Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) and Temasek Polytechnic (TP) will come under the NIEC umbrella, making NIEC the key training provider for the early childhood sector. These early childhood courses will continue to be conducted at the existing campuses.  

NIEC will offer a full range of certificate, diploma, post-diploma and continuing professional development courses on early childhood care and education catering to early childhood educators at different stages of their careers. 



20191月起,所有提供幼儿培训课程的機構,新苗师范学院(NTUC所属的SEED),技术教育学院(ITE),义安理工学院(NP)和淡马锡理工学院(TP)都将纳入NIEC的保护伞之下,使NIEC成为专属幼儿部门。 相关的幼儿课程将继续在现有的校区进行。
