Our Two-year-old programme, also known as pre nursery programme, takes young children on their journey of self-discovery in our kindergarten campuses in Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong. At this age of development, we value the time and space to allow for the building of positive and personal relationships between children and their teachers.
We seek to stimulate their curiosity by ensuring the play-based activities are child-led and meaningful. We believe with growing curiosity comes confidence. The children are immersed in our bilingual English/Chinese (Cantonese) learning environment.
