Asian International College


Asian International College (AIC) seeks to connect with the community of global citizens who share a participatory approach to learning and are interested in being leaders of today’s knowledge economy in order to be ready for the future. Learners join AIC’s programmes not just to be ‘taught’ but to think, participate and create.

Why Choose AIC

As one of Singapore’s leading Early Childhood Education Institute, we provide a range of accredited Certificate and Diploma programmes in both English and Mandarin that prepare educators for vibrant careers in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE).

We focus on igniting the passion and deepening the knowledge and skills of early childhood education professionals. Our certificate and diploma programmes extend beyond conventional approaches. Through contemporary pedagogies, we combine theory and practical experiences in a truly global setting, allowing our students to be immersed in best practices from around the world.

As a testament to our high standards, Asian International College was voted the Top 30 “Preferred Private Education Institutions – OVERALL” in the JobsCentral Learning Rankings and Survey 2012.


The Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) is an autonomous agency jointly overseen by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), and it serves as the regulatory and developmental agency for the early childhood sector in Singapore. The following early childhood programmes below are accredited by ECDA:

  • WSQ Higher Certificates in Infant Care (English and Chinese)
  • WSQ Advanced Certificates in Early Years (English)
  • WSQ Professional Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education (English and Chinese)*
  • WSQ Professional Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education-Teaching (English and Chinese)

*The WSQ Professional Diploma in Early Childhood Care and Education (English and Chinese) is a teach-out programme.

All our WSQ’s range of Certificates and Diplomas are developed according to Skills Framework for Early Childhood Care and Education, a key initiative under Skills Future Singapore (SSG) and Workforce Singapore (WSG). A key feature of the Skills Framework is the recognition of prior learning and competencies attained on the job. Funding support will be provided to every individual (Singaporean and PR) who is interested in joining the ECCE sector, or currently in the sector.

Enriching Learning Experience

Our programmes are delivered either through face-to-face class sessions or a combination of both or hybrid modes to enhance student’s learning experience.

Class sessions are scheduled almost on a daily basis (depending on the programme or module) either in the day or in the evenings to suit learners from different backgrounds. These sessions are designed around interactive learning activities and students are assessed through a variety of methods including, among others, role-play, presentations, group discussions or project work to demonstrate their learning.

Our exclusive partnership with four of Singapore’s leading brands in early childhood education – Brighton Montessori; Learning Vision; Odyssey, The Global Preschool; and Pat’s Schoolhouse – provides our students invaluable exposure to industry best practices and leading-edge pedagogies. To enrich our learners’ experience, we support our students with relevant practicum placements, career counselling and job placements.

Emphasis on Quality and Student Satisfaction

Your learning success and experience are our priorities. We strive for continuous improvement and excellence to ensure that you receive the best from us. We regularly engage our students for feedback to ensure that our programmes remain current and relevant.

A dedicated team of full-time and adjunct faculty members with excellent academic backgrounds as well as in-depth industry experiences delivers our programmes. Our faculty members go beyond teaching; they act as coaches and mentors to help our learners realise their full potential.
