Early Starters Playgroup Application

Early Starters Playgroup

We currently run an Early Starters Playgroup, and from September, we will be running a number of other playgroups, for children aged 0- 36 months, accompanied by an adult (parent or helper).

These are a fantastic opportunity to experience our Kindergarten surroundings and facilities, for the children to play together and socialise, and for their carers to learn some new ideas to use at home. Playgroups are especially beneficial for families who are applying for a place in the Nursery class.

Groups are led by one of our Nursery teachers and an assistant teacher. They are experienced in the care of young children and will be able to talk with you and make suggestions to support you in daily routines, toilet training, early language and vocabulary development among many other themes. They will demonstrate a variety of games, songs, and activities that you can build on at home. In each session, there will be a mix of free choice and whole group activities. We encourage parents/helpers to be fully engaged with the children during the session, to develop your own skills as well as those of the child.

Our current session is January – June 2017. We give priority registration to those who are siblings of students who are currently enrolled in ICHK-HLY, children who have applied to our Pre-Nursery or Nursery programme as well as those currently enrolled in the Early Starters Playgroup. This priority registration opened in October 2016.

From September a new programme of playgroups will be launched. These include:

  • Toddler yoga
  • Infant massage and sensory play
  • Music and movement
  • Outdoor learning
  • Baby gym
  • Early Starters in English and Mandarin
