About

Dawn Fung founded Homeschool Singapore. She was one of the key leaders in the Singapore homeschooling landscape in the early 2010s-2020s. She has spoken at various international events. She believes that education reform begins in the family and every child should have every right to great education. She runs two companies, ParentED International and Little U, focusing on personalising care for parenting, teaching and children’s education for all. She provides consultation to individuals and companies on human resource development with a unique unschooling/homeschooling approach. Dawn Fung homeschools her three children and is based in Singapore.

Life Work

“My dream is to see education reform in Singapore, where every child, parent and educator have full rights and access to great education. Great education is centred around people care. Learning and teaching are customised to the individual who is an involved collaborator of that process. The process of great education is slow, careful, useful, beautiful. Like a skilled craftsman at work, great education brings forth wisdom, the highest form of lifelong learning. It leaves no person behind. It is ever mindful of a journey that takes patience, courage and love to develop. 

These are the ways I advocate and initiate education reform: I teach and I offer consultation. Teaching and consultation are huge umbrellas that overlap. I see these two practices organised around mentoring, coaching, instructing, creating. I work with people of all ages – parents and their children from preschoolers to adults. My desire is to see individuals grow in their potential and in the direction of their gifting. My approaches include building from the ground up communities who take the vision of great education seriously, and creating content – books, events, projects, writings – that reflect my passion.”
