ICHK At A Glance

A quick overview of our school for those in a hurry.

We are one of the few IB schools in Hong Kong to offer students the opportunity to study from Kindergarten to Secondary. ICHK is a warm, friendly yet challenging and stimulating community. Our unique locations offer unrivalled opportunities for outdoor experiences. Collaboration, personalised learning and a commitment to the individual, ensure that at ICHK, everyone can grow, flourish and thrive.


We run a diverse range of playgroups in our wonderfully stimulating kindergarten. Babies and young children from 0-36 months can attend these sessions with a supervising adult. This group is not part of our educational programme, but is an opportunity for parents and children to become familiar with our kindergarten and socialise with other children and parents. This group is especially appropriate for families who are applying for places in the Nursery.

The group meets in one of the Nursery classrooms where children can experience a wide variety of play and get to know the school environment.

Our programme of playgroups include:

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