About Pre-Schools (Northern Region)

Kamakshi Social and Welfare Association (PKDS) in collaboration with CHILD and MCEF runs 24 preschools in the northern region under the Harapan Preschool Programme (HPP). An experienced coordinator, together with 3 administrators and 2 advisors are in charge of all the administrative work as well as the running of the preschools. A total of 45 teachers have undergone the preschool certification course under the guidance of Harapan Preschool Programme for three years. Besides, these teachers are also helped by seven helpers; and together they teach up to 650 students in 24 preschools.


In 2012, PKDS with the help of CHILD, MCEF, Prime Minister’s Department (JPM) and the Parent Teachers Association of the corresponding schools, managed to officiate 2 new preschools – Tadika CHILD SJK(T) Kalaimagal, Sungai Petani and Tadika CHILD SJK(T) Ladang Bukit Mertajam, Kulim – that incurred a cost of about RM 190, 000.00.

In the year of 2013. We hope to increase the number of students attending the preschools to 750 people. Moreover, we also aim to introduce various tools and methodologies that are more effective and efficient in order to increase the quality of teaching and learning in the preschools, in accordance to the government’s regulations.
