Sony is the founder of Sunshine Preschools and has 25 years of experience in early childhood education. She has been training teachers and conducting workshops for parents and teachers since 2005.
Sony is a passionate educator and has a burning desire to continue to uplift the quality of early childhood in Indonesia through parent and teacher education.
“With the number of preschools mushrooming in Indonesia, there are not enough qualified or trained teachers to meet the demand”, says Sony.
“The government requires that preschool teachers have a Bachelors degree in early childhood education, but the number of graduates in this field every year are not enough to meet the demand. It takes 3 – 4 years to get any bachelors degree and very few want to or are able to spend the time and money for this.
The alternative is to provide teachers with a hands-on, immediately applicable program that they can implement in their schools to help enhance children’s education. And this is what our Diploma program is all about.
We have trained hundreds of teachers over the years. Our teachers are out there today making a big difference in their approach to educating children”
The demand for new preschools is also high in demand. Sony was the owner of four preschools in Indonesia. Having sold them she now focuses her attention as a consultant to individuals and companies who want to achieve their dreams in setting up their own preschools successfully in Indonesia.
Sony’s education background includes a Masters in Education (Australia), Diploma in Montessori Education (London), Diploma in Special Needs Management (Singapore) and a Bachelor in Commerce (India).
But it’s her ‘real-life, practical’ experience where you will find the most value and benefit in dealing with Sony.
