Meet The Rare Male Pre-school Teacher

Can you trust male pre-school teachers? How many male kindergarten teachers are there? In Singapore, less than 1% of pre-school educators are male.

The reason? According to Lorbert Tay, a rare pre-school teacher who has been in the early childhood sector for close to 10 years, is parents’ prejudice.

Fears of molesters and pedophiles made parents sceptical when he joined as a subject teacher teaching cooking classes with PCF Sparkletots.
 
“I was very stressed,” Lorbert recalls, “I had to watch my back to make sure I didn’t do things that parents would feel awkward about.”

To allay fears, Lorbert imposed strict guidelines – which the early childhood sector does not have for male educators.
