Hi, my name is Yong Ling and I’m currently pursuing a diploma in Child Psychology and Early Education in Ngee Ann Polytechnic. My love for children and ambition to be a child psychologist are perhaps the reasons on why I chose to study this field. I like to know more about children's thinking and also work with children with special needs. Besides, I find it fulfilling and a joy to work with children as each of them is unique and special in their own ways. Moreover, working in this field means that we can be a part of and make a difference to each of their lives.

Kinderland (Safra Tampines)

I spent my September holidays working as an intern in one of the more well-known child care centres in Singapore─ Kinderland (Safra). It was an enriching and eye-opening experience for me as I got to learn a lot from my fellow senior teachers there. They guided me patiently and gave me tips on how to handle pre-school children. These real life exposures and hands-on experiences are not those which one can learn from the book. Instead, I believe that it is through internships like this that we can apply what we have learnt during our tutorials into meaningful practices.

National Park Kindergarten

During my December holidays, I was given the privilege and opportunity to go on an overseas service learning trip to Ho Chi Minh City, where we conducted an exchange program with the people there. Throughout the 13 days, we visited a total of three kindergartens around the vicinity and shared our knowledge of healthcare, safety practices as well as effective strategies for teaching and learning English with the Vietnamese teachers and high officials. In addition, we also conducted a successful full day storytelling and creative arts workshop for the teachers and college students there. This was indeed a wonderful learning experience for me.
