SEED Institute started out as the Regional Training and Resource Centre (RTRC Asia) in 1989. It was rebranded as SEED Institute in 2009 and established itself as the leading Early Childhood Education (ECE) training institute in Singapore. SEED has been fulfilling its mission to strengthen and raise the quality of early childhood education and related sectors, like community and social services, both in Singapore and internationally.
Through its practice-oriented training courses and learning support, early childhood and related professionals are equipped with the knowledge, skills and competencies to nurture young children in their cognitive and socio-emotional development.
In 2019, with the formation of the National Institute of Early Childhood (NIEC) to oversee all ECE-related qualifications, SEED transformed its business to focus on delivering high-quality programmes for young children outside of childcare services to enrich their growth and development.
