Persatuan Tadika Malaysia (Malaysian Association of Kindergartens) or PTM is the pioneer organisation involved in pre-school education in Malaysia. Since 1973, we have made vast contributions towards the continual training and professional development of pre-school teachers in Malaysia.
PTM had its early beginnings at a national seminar cum workshop on pre-school education where Miss Constance White, an Education Ministry official, raised the need for an association to spearhead the upgrading of pre-school education in the country. Subsequently, the inaugural meeting of PTM was held on 25 August 1973 at Fatima Kindergarten in Kuala Lumpur. Sister Denise Paquette was elected the first Chairman of the Association at this meeting, which was attended by over 160 members. Today, PTM’s membership has increased and continues to attract more members each year.
