Hong Kong Academy launches its new playgroup for children ages 2 to 3
If you’ve forsaken the convenience of a 7-Eleven on every street corner for the beautiful beaches of Sai Kung, we don’t blame you. Some open space, clean air, the sea breeze and all of that beauty located not too far from the city – what’s not to love? Although compared to families living on HK Island or in Kowloon, there may not be the same multitude of playgroups and childcare found a little further south. But thankfully there is one new welcome addition as Hong Kong Academy is launching a new Sai Kung playgroup this autumn for children ages 2 to 3, with accompanying adults.
The best news is that the first six weeks are free, with continuing students guaranteed an invitation for assessment for HKA’s PK classes for the 2019-20 school year. So you can rest a little easier knowing you’re on the right track if HKA is the school for you. Plus there’s no need to wait until the start of term for your little one’s playgroup spot here, as admissions are on a rolling basis.
Hong Kong Academy will be a place where your little ones will learn and thrive and you may pick up some new skills yourself! While at playgroup, kids will be kept on their toes and develop their language skills; the playgroup’s curriculum uses Mandarin as a mirror language with activities run by specialist early years teachers. And for parents and caregivers, there will be various learning opportunities for you to take part in yourselves. The HKA team, along with other experts in the childcare field, will offer information sessions twice a month, which we’re sure any parent would appreciate.
Still not sure? If you need to chat to someone in person (or want to learn more about HKA) and see if it’s the right fit for your family, attend its upcoming Early Childhood Open House, usually held on the first Thursday of the month (9:30 am to 11:00 am).
