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.
Early Starters Playgroup
Children from 18 months to three years old 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.
The September – December 2016 Early Starters Playgroup is currently full and we have a waiting list. Our next session will be January – June 2017. Priority registration will be given to those who have siblings currently enrolled in ICHK Hong Lok Yuen; children who have applied to our Pre-Nursery or Nursery programme, and children currently enrolled in the Early Starters Playgroup. This priority registration will open in October 2016.
Children take their first educational steps during the kindergarten years and these form the essential building blocks for their future learning. For children who are two years and eight months and who are enrolled to join the Nursery in the following September, we offer an afternoon Pre-Nursery programme from January onwards. This is held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
