Refugee children: Early education in exile

The majority of refugee children in Malaysia struggle to access early learning so crucial for their development.

With the absence of a systematic approach, many refugee families and teachers are left navigating an under-resourced early childhood education landscape – leaving refugee children behind their peers, threatening their developmental potential and future opportunities.

Astro Awani’s Melisa Idris speaks to Dr Kimberley Kong, a senior lecturer on early childhood education and child development at Universiti Sains Malaysia.
