For over 125 years, Wheelock College, a Boston (USA) based liberal arts institution has had a passion and mission to improve the lives of children and families. In Singapore, our focus for the past quarter of a century has been to train exemplary early childhood professionals.
The Wheelock College-Singapore Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education is designed to provide Singaporean students a challenging and rigorous education that balances theory about the growth and development of young children with the practical skills necessary for students to become successful practitioners and leaders in the profession. The programme has an added emphasis on special needs children and the inculcation of managerial and leadership skills for future professionals. The Wheelock program features American-style interactive teaching and learning, with both primary Wheelock faculty from Boston and co-instructors from Singapore team-teaching many of the modules.
The Wheelock program is led in Singapore by a full-time resident director, and is supported by both SIT and the Wheelock Center for International Programs and Partnerships. Founded in 1888 by Lucy Wheelock, the College is recognized nationally and internationally as one of the premier institutions in America for its longstanding programs for students in the USA and abroad who are passionate about entering the teaching profession, and who seek to improve and enrich the lives of young children and their families.
A special highlight of the Wheelock degree experience is a required five-week Summer Immersion Program, held on the beautiful Wheelock campus in the heart of Boston, one of the US’s oldest and culturally dynamic cities. This experience, which commences the second year of study, includes instruction in three intensive modules as well as the opportunity to interact with American ECE professionals in many different settings.
