Hi JJ,

If u have a CPT w/o exp - I would say between 1k - 1.2k. But then some preschools may have the budget then u might get a better salary scale.

Hi Ally,

then what abt the max cap for the teacher with the dip?

And also what shld be look out for if I m sourcing for a CC for my son ? thks

A teacher with dip - starting salary would be abt 1.4k (most meagre) to about 1.6k (if ur lucky enuff). once u have at least 1 - 3 yrs exp u can ask about 1.7k - 1.8k. But nowadays market really bad.. usually the bosses will try to push the salary to the very minimal.

If ur finding a CC for ur child - shd look out for teacher's qualification, the kind of curriculum the school offers, hygiene practices and also the teacher:child ratio.

Hi Ally,

I am also currently a principal in a CC. Hoping to do a master in ECE this july.
I agree wif u that the salary for early childhood teacher is not so high. But I guess its the job satisfaction that count. I love spending time wif my children. And I still teach for 45 min everyday so that I can keep in contact with the children.

hi all teachers & principals,

me too, intend to do a career switch and is looking at EC education. will most likely be taking the specialist dip next year, if i've really made up my mind by then!

worse to worse, if after studying doesn't wanna teach, can apply on my girl who just turn 2 yrs old
lame.gif
but it's a bit wasted, fees abt 10K.

can anyone advise on those work & study scheme? e.g work part time at the CC, n they sponsor u for the course. usu what are the terms & conditions or bond/contract that comes attached?

Hi Angelia,

I am also in the CC line currently a Principal. From the perspective of centre, if you are a newbie in company, chances of sending you for course r quite low and also u need to sign bond with company for at least 2 years or more. Moreover u are going to take the Specialist Dip which sometimes there are no SDF funding given to the company, thus not many childcare would want to send you for this course.

If you looking for a job at CC while studying, make sure that your classes dun start too early if it's a full time job. Cos when centre employ you, they would not want too much disprution to the centre's operation in order to let you go off early for your class. Your co-workers will have to be accomodating if not you will have a hard time ahead.

But it would be so much more beneficial to work in CC and study at the same time cos there's lots of hands on experience that you can never learn from the books and learning from the other teachers also on how they cope with situations and children. Good luck!

Hi all

This is my first time looking through the SingaporeBrides Forum and I was so excited when I saw Topic "Early Childhood". I joined this line 2 years back after quiting from office job and has finished a year of my study in ECC (2 more years to go). I REALLY enjoyed working with the kids and I have good chemistry with them too. However....sad to say, having to pay the expensive school fees and to support my family, somehow, I have to be forced to go back to office work, which I am so reluctant to do so...I am now caught in a difficult spot...I don't know what to do...wanting to do something I love yet have to be responsible enough to take care of the financial status of the family...sigh

Hi all,

I am currently an ITE student graduating in March. I am very interested in taking a diploma in ECH but called up NP and they said they have not & dont intend to take in ITE cert. So i found RTRC. anyone studied there before? the certificate is approved in MOE right?

New Member
RTRC is recongized by MCYS, not MOE as they dun govern the childcare sector. RTRC or Kinderland, Learning Capital are the better ECH training agencies to go to.
