Curriculum Details
Curriculum type
Local
Curriculum planning
We cover six learning areas in accordance with the Education Bureau’s ‘Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide’ (2017). We foster comprehensive and balanced child development through free play, picture book teaching and arts integration.Our objective is to develop skills and talents needed internationally and locally, focusing on Attitude, Active-learning, Artistic Sensibility, Advocacy and Adaptability. We emphasise biliteracy and trilingualism by providing English and Putonghua classes, and we offer environmental education to encourage children to protect and cherish nature.
We will follow the "Kindergarten Education Curriculum Guide" (2017) to plan curriculum. Children of nursery classes will not be asked to write, and there will not be mechanical copying exercises and drills on calculation.
Learning / Teaching approach and activities
Our curriculum uses picture books and a life theme-based approach to empower children to participate in their own learning. We offer bilingual classes to enhance language development. There are also specific areas such as a multi-purpose playroom, music room, rock-climbing wall, creative art gallery, reading corner and Amazing Blocks wall to enrich the learning environment. Children can explore and widen their learning experience in these spaces. We promote self-learning and encourage children to ‘observe, explore, experience, associate, operate and use’ through various teaching strategies and activities.
Assessment of children’s learning experiences
We assess children’s learning performance through continuous observation. We distribute Learning Assessment Reports and Learning Portfolios regularly, helping parents understand their children’s overall development and progress.
